The nohoanu (noh-ho-AH-noo), or “mist-dweller” is a geranium found on Haleakalā mountain. The species has delicate pink, purple or white flowers that are pollinated by the native Hawaiian yellow-faced bee. The leaves are often tinged red, possibly an adaptation to protect them against the harsh alpine sun. These endangered plants are found in high-altitude grasslands and forests, and sometimes in the shrubland.
