CAN YOU HELP? I’m dumbfounded. I cannot identify this flora specimen I photographed in Maui.
While strolling through a free arboretum on the way to Hana on the Hana Highway in Maui, I came upon a bunch of large, blue seed pods or nuts on the ground near a Golden Bamboo cluster. There were plenty of other trees in the area, but the nuts were nearest the colossal bamboo.
The Golden Bamboo cluster I found these nuts by was huge; I looked as short as an elf standing next to it. Many of the bamboo stalks were three and four inches wide. Knocking on them was like knocking on cement. If I were stranded on a untouched area of Maui (could that even exist?), even I would have no problem building shelter for myself. That is, of course, if I could actually CUT the bamboo. <wait for it . . . > DAMN!
So, whatchamacallit? Please share what you know in the comment section below. THANKS!
