Dianella multipedicellata. Hawai`i, O`ahu, Ko`olau Mountains, Hau`ula area, the ridge between Kaipāpa`u and Waipilopilo. Plant 1. An old, dead inflorescence.

Dianella multipedicellata O. Degener

Hawaiian names: `uki`uki

Family: Xanthorrhoeaceae

Habit: an herbaceous plant with rhizomes that forms a clump initially. With time, a patch of plants consisting of a single clone may be formed.

Native, endemic.

 

Dianella multipedicellata has been recorded from Kaua`i, O`ahu (Wai`anae Mountains and Ko`olau Mountains), Lāna`i, West Maui, and Hawai`i (recorded from only one area - the Kalapana Trail area in the district of Puna). Although the species has not been recorded from the island of Moloka`i, it probably occurs there.

 

Habitat: dry to mesic forest and shrubland.

 

Dianella multipedicellata is relatively rare.
