Pua Kala. What sets Pua Kala apart from our other JL florals?  First off, it’s an actual plant endemic to Hawai’i; the only endemic poppy here.  And it’s not any run of the mill Poppy, it’s known as the Prickly Poppy for a reason.  The Pua Kala is a bad ass that can withstand the harshest of conditions. She tolerates wind and heat and fire and can regenerate soon after her habitat has burned.  She’s so beautiful and fragile (the blooms will wilt very quickly once they are picked) but at the same time, don’t mess with her because she will get you with her thorns and she is a survivor! Nothing is going to bring her down.  She’s one of my all time favorite plants and this print is a celebration of her and her indomitable spirit.
