They say that life finds a way. No matter how harsh the conditions or impossible the landscape seems, some sprig of life will make a home and thrive.
In fact, in Hawaii there is one brave and hardy flower that shoots up in new lava flows before anything else.
Imagine! Across a span of sterile black lava rock without a sign of life, where not even an ugly little shrub or weed will make its home, the ʻōhiʻa lehua flower pops up its tenacious and lovely little head!
