Tropical Flower Spotlight: “Awapuhi” – Shampoo ginger

Now that the winter months are coming to Hawaii, with shorter days and cooler temperatures, most of our Beehive Ginger varieties have disappeared and gone dormant until springtime. Coming into season are the Shampoo Ginger flowers, also members of the Zingiber family. "Awapuhi", in the Hawaiian language, was brought to the Hawaiian Islands centuries ago as a 'canoe plant' with the early Polynesian settlers.

When the "awapuhi kuahiwi" flowers initially appear, they are green, but turn to bright red as they mature. The mature flower has a pleasant scent and contains a foamy juice that you can wash your hair with.
