Maui: Silversword

At the top of the Haleakala crater are these strange, and very rare plants called Haleakala ahinahina or Haleakala Silversword. This photo shows clearly where the name came from, but not why I called the plant strange. For that you really need to see what it looks like when it is flowering.
