Silversword in Flower at 9700 feet Near Edge of the Crater - Haleakala National Park and Volcano




Silversword in Flower at 9700 feet Near Edge of the Crater - Haleakala National Park and Volcano





On the trip to the Hawaiian island of Maui we went to the crater of the volcano Haleakala at around 10 000 feet. Unfortunately, when in touring buses, one can't stop and take photos of all the wildflowers around but at a visitors' centre at 7000 feet, and higher up I was able to get some photos of silverswords, a unique and amazing plant. I think this information underneath is adequate for the description of this plant, and it comes from two sources.

The plant in flower here is growing very strangely. The flowering spike should be straight but this one has curled back on itself. I am not too sure either, but I don't know if the flowers are to be more open, or if it is just past it's prime or if this is what it is like in reality for flowers.

Haleakala Silversword
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Haleakala silversword (Argyroxiphium sandwicense macrocephalum) is part of the family Asteraceae. The silversword in general is referred to as ?ahinahina in Hawaiian (literally, "very gray"), and it has been a threatened species according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service since May 15, 1922. Excessive grazing by cattle and goats and vandalism inflicted by people in the 1920s caused near extinction of the Haleakala silversword. The plant has been strictly monitored and protected by the government since and is considered a successful conservation story, although threat to the species remain. This plant is only found on the island of Maui in Haleakala National Park at an elevation of 2,100 to 3,000 m on the Haleakala summit depression, the rim summits, and surrounding slopes of the dormant Haleakala volcano.

===================

Physical characteristics
Silversword plants in general grow on volcanic cinder, a dry, rocky substrate that is subject to freezing temperatures and high winds. Haleakala silversword has numerous sword-like succulent leaves covered with silver hairs. The skin and hairs are strong enough to resist the wind and freezing temperature of this altitude and protect the plant from dehydration and the sun.
The plant's base of leaves, arranged in a spherical formation at ground level of the plant, dominate for the majority of the plant's life — which may be greater than 50 years. The leaves are arranged so that they and the hairs of the leaves can raise the temperature of the shoot-tip leaves up to 20°C, thereby adapting to the extreme high-altitude temperatures by focusing the sunlight to converge at this point and warm the plant.

====================

Lifecycle
At senescence, which often occurs when the plant reaches a diameter of approximately one-half meter[when?], the plant produces a tall stalk of maroon ray flowers which resemble the sunflower in just a few weeks. Flowering usually occurs from July through October.[1] This flowering stalk may have up to 600 heads of up to 40 outlying ray flowers and 600 disk flowers and is pollinated by flying insects like Hylaeus (Nesoprosopis) volcanicus. The flower stalk can reach up to two meters in height and has numerous tiny sticky hairs to prevent crawling insects from damaging the plant. Seeding of the plant is very sensitive because damage to the flowers or stalk by insects before reseeding further hinders the threatened species’ propagation. The leaves become limp and dry as the monocarpic plant then goes to seed and dies.

=====================

History and conservation
Before the National Park Service was granted control of Haleakala volcano, visitors to the volcano's summit often participated in the common practice of uprooting a silversword plant and then rolling it on the jagged lava rock terrain, drying the flowers for arrangements, or using the plant as kindling. Because the delicate, shallow root structure can be crushed by walking in the rocks around the plant, they are very sensitive to foreign elements. Feeding by goats also severely damaged many plants and prevented reproduction. Ungulates are now fenced out of the crater area and the species is legally protected from damage by humans

There are three species of silversword, found on the slopes of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa (on the Big Island of Hawaii) and Haleakala on Maui. It is believed that the silversword is a distant relative of a California Tarweed which made it to Hawai`i on its own and over many centuries has evolved into the unique plant we see today.

Upon maturity after twelve to fifty years, the silversword will produce a five-foot-tall stalk from its center covered with hundreds of one-inch flowers, produce seeds for the ne

1,000 Seeds, Red Poppy "Corn Poppy" (Papaver rhoeas) Seeds By Seed Needs






Red Poppy (Papaver Rhoeas) - The red poppy is one of the most popular wild flower seeds in all the world. It is also called Corn Poppy or Flander's Poppy. Many people think that red poppy seed is the same seed that is used for making poppy seed rolls in baking although this is not true. Red poppy is also not the species used to manufacture opium and heroin. The Opium Poppy (P. somniferum) is a larger species and it is the one that produces the seeds for baking and also can be used for making illegal drugs.
