This hinahina is one of four native Geranium subspecies found in the Hawaiian islands. A hardy plant, hinahina is often found at the upper vegetation margins of our high mountains. The name, Hinahina, translates to "silver" in english. Hinahina has the distinction of being the world's only woody geranium.
