Fragrance Fragrant Hawaiian flowers are tuberose, pikake, ginger, and plumeria. They are most popular for their sweet fragrance and their neutral, soft colors. They are most delicate, however, and one should consider travel time when selecting these leis for their special event.
Size and Color Orchid leis are the hardiest, varying in sizes and colors. Our singles are usually 1 1/2-2 inches in diameter. Double size can range from 2-3 inches in diameter. Diameter will vary depending on the size and bloom status of the flower. Colors range from lavender purple hues, to lime chartreuse green. The specialty orchids come in interesting patterns and textural designs.
Length Leis are approximately 36-38 inches in length. The leis are usually tied to be worn around the neck, with the exception of the maile, or the ti leaf types of leis. A long needle and double thread are
used to string most fresh leis. The hakus, wristlets, boutonnieres and hairpieces
are also crafted by hand, with the added elements of floral wire, tape, or twine.
All fresh flowers are carefully selected and sewn by hand.
Storage Tip Flowers have been traveling for one to two days and will appreciate being stored
in refrigeration. Put one to two leis in plastic bags and refrigerate immediately.
