Lavish color photographs by Jean Cote showcase each plant and lei (shown by itself or worn), as well as places throughout the Islands associated with specific flowers and plants, many of which are no longer abundant in the wild. To help conserve the source of na lei makamae, Hawai'i's native flora, the authors advise lei makers to cultivate their own plants. An appendix includes a complete list of lei plants, basic instructions for their propagation, and other sources for material."--Jacket."@en ;

"This volume covers eighty-eight flowers and plants (and another dozen color variations) used in traditional lei construction. They are arranged according to their Hawaiian names and accompanied by botanical information and descriptions gleaned from legends and chants that illustrate the cultural uses and special meanings of lei prior to Western contact. Many include poems written especially for this work by master kumu hula, linguist, and ethnologist Pualani Kanaka'ole Kanahele."" ;
