The uhiuhi tree, with its delicate blossoms, once ranged from the dry lowlands to the moist upland forests of Hawaii. However, it is now highly endangered, primarily because of cattle and other grazing animals introduced in the 1800's. Leis were made from the small lovely flowers. The dense wood was used to make weapons, tools, fish hooks, house beams, and runners for holua sleds. Printed on Hosho Japanese paper with beautiful deckle edges. Ships in a tube.
