    Hi, I believe the the first one might be a Delonix, but not sure, "C" is an Achmea fasciata (bromeliad), B,D,F,G,H,Q+R are orchids, but which ones? "I" & J are also bromeliads, and the rest look familiar, but can't come up with the names. You might have luck with the orchids at www.gardenweb.com/forums/orchids as the people on that site (that has a great gallery) really know their stuff, the site also has a bromeliad forum.

    E and G are C both Clerodendron thompsonae, C, F, I, J, and O are all bromeliads, P is an Anthurium, L and possibly T are Jasminium, D, H, Q, and R are Orchids. Joe

    Some more possibilities for your Hawaiian flowers-
    A Alpinia purpurea
    C ornamental pineapple, Ananas bracteata maybe.
    H Galphimia gracilis or something in the same family, Malpighiaceae
    K Antigonon leptopus
    L Gardenia taitensis
    M looks like an Azalea
    Q Couroupita guianensis
    R koa haole, Leucaena leucocephala
    T perhaps Mandevilla?

    I don't think M is an azalea (tho' can understand why you thought so).

    I'd agree with T as being a mandevilla. Though technically I would like to argue that it's a dipladenia, as I know mandevilla as the vine and dipladenia as more of a bush plant. But apparently they're both in the same group anyways!
