Geranium arboreum - HEAR
Nearly-opened flower of Geranium arboreum, and endangered species, in Waikamoi Preserve

Hawaiian geraniums are woody-stemmed (vs. herbaceous, as are all other of the world's geraniums), and this magenta-flowered endangered species (Geranium arboreum) has uncharacteristically bilaterally-symmetric flowers which are bird-pollinated, unlike any other geranium.
