Gardening on Maui: Mite does not affect quality of flowers on hibscus shrubs

By LORRAINE BROOKS , for The Maui News

There are a number of hibiscus varieties that are found in landscapes on Maui. Many people know that hibiscus is Hawaii's state flower. The actual species is hibiscus brackenridgei, also known as ma'o hau hele. It is a native and endemic, which means it's naturally found in Hawaii, but it's also only found in Hawaii. Its natural range includes Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Oahu and Kauai, although it is not commonly found in any of those areas. H. brackenridgei is a federally listed endangered species.
