   This member of the Campanulaceae family was first described by Asa Gray in 1867. It is found on the northern island of Hawaii; Kaua’i, growing on sea cliffs and up to 2000 meters height. Give it a well-drained potting soil, lots of water and sun. The stem will get up to 30 centimetres wide and 180 centimetres high. The flowers are white to yellow, and as far as I know; it can only be reproduced by seeds.

Prefer temperatures around 20-25 C.

There are fewer than 20 Brighamia insignis plants on Kaua’i.

First, the male pollen pops out, then the female grifle.
