White Hibiscus Kauai

Photo Essay: Hibiscus of KauaiThe hibiscus of Kauai are everywhere you turn. We saw even more hibiscus than we did on Maui. Not only did we see the most common known yellow hibiscus, the Hawaii state flower, but we also saw them in colors and patterns we’d never seen before.

On Kauai, you will find not only the seven species of native Hawaiian hibiscus, but also the ornamental Chinese hibiscus and numerous hybrids. All colors and varieties of the hibiscus were adopted as the official Territorial Flower in the early 1920s with the red hibiscus being shown on Hawaiian memorabilia, souvenirs, and postcards.Hibiscus of Kauai as officially selected to represent the Hawaiian Islands.

Kenaf makes an even better paper than hemp. The botanical name is Hibiscus cannabis and it looks rather like marijuana, though the two are not related. Buy kenaf paper if you can. The only company in the U.S. that produces kenaf paper is Vision Paper in New Mexico.
I like your 7 steps by the way, especially the 7th.
