Color Palette: Pikake

Aug 02

This little beauty is from my yard! For those of you who live where Pikake grows naturally (my Hawaii family in particular), you are blessed to say the least.  

My husband’s cousin gave him this plant for his birthday and it is now on the short list of ‘requires babying’ favorite plants that we own. So far it is a small plant and doesn’t particularly like our hot dry So-Cal weather, but it did produce this amazing bloom with another little baby one beside it. I wish I could put in to words the fragrance. It is truly amazing. Our little Pikake bloom also helped me develop this color palette, stringing together some cream-family hues that I intend to put to use. What a win-win!

Wishing you a beautiful week!
