    Please post some photos

    If you can show scale (size comparison) it helps

    Is this on the wet or dry side of Maui (town name)

    My apologies, not sure why the photo didn’t post. Trying again.

    Revised location is Kula, Maui (upcountry)

    Well you asked the right Vancouver BC - based forum

    Western Canadians were well known for their love of Maui especially Kihei in the 1970s onward - Maui Rib copy-cat recipes are still popular in BC supermarkets (copying Azeka Market which was on Kihei Road)

    Your flower -
    I suggest it’s
    “Walking iris”
    (Neomarica

    It’s very pretty isn’t it?

    Have a look at the links below

    https://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/oc/freepubs/pdf/OF-41.pdf

    Neomarica | Pacific Bulb Society

    Neomarica caerulea (walking iris) And some info from England - classified invasive ?

    And for Vancouverites who like a tropical look Neomarica caerulea 'Regina' - Giant Apostles' Iris - Iridaceae (The Iris Family)
