Aloha ʻĀina Gift (ʻĀweoweo)

Aloha ʻĀina Gift (ʻĀweoweo)


ʻĀweoweo is a native, endemic shrub named after the ʻāweoweo fish due to the fishy odor leaves emit when they are crushed or bruised. The red stems are also reminiscent of the fish's red color. Growing 3-10' tall, it can reach the height of a small tree. This hardy species grows in either full sun or partial shade and needs little watering. ʻĀweoweo is a member of the goosefoot family, with three-lobed leaves that resemble a goose's foot. The leaves can be cooked and eaten, and parts of the stem were traditionally used as fish hooks.


Give the gift of aloha to the land that gives us so much!

This species will be planted in Pia Valley, Oʻahu, a 330-acre nature preserve we have the honor and kuleana of stewarding.

Your gift supports our mission to protect and preserve Hawaiʻi's fragile ecosystems.
