    Fagraea berteriana, known locally as Pua-keni-keni is a wonderful flower which grows on shrubs or trees. Local ones are on trees. They are often used in the making of leis due to a sweet fragrance. When the flower is first picked it is white and then within a day or more it will turn orange. Nice to wear a lei that changes color! The fragrance can be too intense for some folks but not me. The hawaiian name translates to "ten cent flower" as they were sold as a lei making flower in the past for ten cents each. Aloha
