Island of Moloka'i Official Lei Material
The Hawaiian island of Moloka'i recognizes pua kukui (Aleurites moluccana) as the official island lei material. Pua kukui is the white blossom of the candlenut tree (the fruit of this tree was used for candles by early settlers, hence it's common name). The candlenut tree (Kukui) is also the official state tree of Hawaii. All State Flowers
