HAWAIIAN    SILVERSWORD  PLANT   in Full Bloom.
Silversword is beloved and striking. These beautiful plants grow at high altitudes -Mount Halealaka
One of the most amazing of all these Hawaiian endemics is the silver sword (Argyroxiphium sandwicense ssp. macrocephalum)
that only grows in the cinders of Haleakala Crater on the island of Maui. The rosettes of sword-shaped leaves are covered with silvery hairs
that reflect light and heat and provide insulation against the intense solar radiation and extreme   aridity of this 10,000 foot (3,000 m) volcanic mountain.
