being. not the zen of the name. do you look past the listen of the name? or do you give yourself a chance to experience and learn past the initial experience? how does this name relate to this daylily? Mahukona is a dormant and even further a submerged volcano on the northwest coast of Hawaii. the flower is a subdued melon. Mahukona the flower is described as a pink melon polychrome. hear it, see it. has it grabbed your interest ? or have you already started to focus in another direction ? not everyone has to be a fan of the peachy melon color. so do not feel compelled. however it might be worthwhile to understand its nature. volcanos, even submerged and dormant should never be taken for granted. Pele in Hawaiian religion is noted for many qualities. She is the spirit of volcanos, fire, lightning, and wind. Pele is also a source of creative power, passion, purpose, and profound love. so despite the apparent dormancy Mahukona is all of this. the flower by the same name has similar qualities not to be ignored. its parentage includes Golliwog × (Orchid Corsage × Just for Laughs). Golliwog is another polychrome and petals that can flow with the best of lava. Orchid Corsage has movement in its petals. Both of them have been shown here in the past. Just for Laughs is an unusual form, yes another daylily that can flow with the movement of its petals. And it is a big flower just under 10 inches across. so this is some of the potential that Mahukona can display and pass on to its children. all things considered i think it is fitting this flower is named for a slumbering volcano.
