One of the most unusual and striking plants to be seen along the Hana Highway is the Bird of Paradise flower. This unique flower actually blooms after being pollinated by bird’s feet. That’s right, when a bird lands on the closed flower, the action causes it to open so it can be dusted by the bird’s pollen. Look for these gorgeous blossoms in the Garden of Eden arboretum, located about a mile past Waikamoi Falls at mile marker 10 on the Road to Hana.
