    Hi, I went to Hawaii about a month ago and I took come pictures of flowers that I found pretty. Like an idiot, I forgot to write down what I was taking pictures of. Can you help me find out what these are?

    PS - This is my first post, so if I did anything wrong, I'm really sorry!

    hello

    Hawaii 25 = ohia lehua Metrosideros spp
    23 and 33 look like plumeria
    18 could be cordyline or Ti
    19 could be aucuba

    No. 19 is, I think, Aucuba japonica (Spotted Laurel).

    PS, I now see Pierrot beat me to it, but that means two of us agree.

    Cordyline terminalis, a purpleleaf cultivar
    Gardenia, maybe one of the native ones like G. brighamii
    Dunno, maybe something like a Brunfelsia
    Dietes
    Hibiscus arnottianus or similar
    Vireya rhododendron, probably a hybrid
    Bromeliad, maybe a Neoregelia
    Vireya rhododendron, maybe R. aurigeranum or similar
    Metrosideros
    Bougainvillea
    Zingeraceae (ginger family), don't remember what this one is called at the moment
    Another purple ti plant (Cordyline terminalis)
    Croton (Aucuba is incorrect)
    Plumeria
    Ixora
    Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cultivar

    Hallo, I`m new here as you are, I`ve never gone to Hawaii (my dream, but rather far away from Germany ).Well, I can help you identify some .no 201 + 211 are hibiscus rosa-sinensis - I`ve got several of them on my windowsill. no 210 is a Bougainvillea, no 275 is some Bromeliad. I know some more, but I`m tired nowat 2 o `clock in the morning.Bye Keciha

    3 - something in family Apocynaceae, possibly Cerbera sp.
    4 - Dietes bicolor
    5 - Hibiscus arnottianus, as Ron said, not H. rosa-sinensis (whatever is meant by that name)
    11- possibly Alpinia purpurea, but mixed with leaves of something else
