Artist's Description

From Wikipedia: The Haleakalā silversword (Argyroxiphium sandwicense subsp. macrocephalum) is part of the family Asteraceae. The silversword in general is referred to as ʻāhinahina in Hawaiian (literally, “very gray”), and it has been a threatened species according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service since May 15, 1922. Excessive grazing by cattle and goats and vandalism inflicted by people in the 1920s caused near extinction of the Haleakalā silversword. The plant has been strictly monitored and protected by the government since and is considered a successful conservation story, although threat to the species remain. This plant is only found on the island of Maui in Haleakalā National Park at an elevation of 2,100 to 3,000 m on the Haleakalā summit depression, the rim summits, and surrounding slopes of the dormant Haleakalā volcano.
