Aloha ʻĀina Gift (ʻIlieʻe)

Aloha ʻĀina Gift (ʻIlieʻe)


ʻIlieʻe is a native, indigenous sprawling shrub that grows 1-3' tall. It's an excellent ground cover plant that can spread up to 15' or more on the ground. It grows well in the full sun or shade, tolerates drought, wind, and heat, and helps prevent erosion.

The white flowers can appear year-round, and parts of the ʻilieʻe were traditionally used to alleviate sores and sprains. The sap was sometimes used as an ingredient in tattoo dyes.


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.

The land is a chief, man is her servant.
