Loulu is the only palm tree native to Hawaiʻi. Many loulu species are endangered, sadly. Invasive rats eat the loulu fruit and destroy the seeds, preventing new loulu plants from growing. Conservationists now propagate loulu in greenhouses and plant them into the wild.
Please note: These pins are on sale because of very subtle corrosion.
Historically, loulu fronds were used for roof thatching and hat-making.
