Loulu : The Hawaiian Palm. This button opens a dialog that displays additional images for this product with the option to zoom in or out. Tell us if something is incorrect. Loulu : The Hawaiian Palm. There is a total of 24 species, all in the genus Pritchiardia, are described and their history, distribution in the islands, ecology, conservation status, and identification are discussed. Includes 263 color photos. In the course of his work, he described and named three loulu that were new to science. Published by: University of Hawai'i Press. Each of the 24 species is treated in detail and this book is handsomely illustrated with more than 200 color photographs that clearly show leaves, flower stalks, fruits, and habitat. Chapters on loulu history, botany, ecology, conservation, uses, and propagation and culture provide essential background information for readers, whatever their level of interest or expertise.

Forewords by Paul R. Weissich and William S. MerwinThe only native palms in Hawai‘i, loulu are among the Islands’ most distinctive plants. Several of the 24 recognized species are rare and endangered and all make handsome and appropriate ornamentals to adorn gardens and landscapes with their dramatic foliage, colorful flower clusters, and conspicuous fruits. In this volume, Donald Hodel shares his expertise on loulu, having traveled extensively throughout Hawai‘i to research and photograph nearly all the species in their native habitat. In the course of his work, he described and named three loulu that were new to science.

Each of the 24 species is treated in detail and this book is handsomely illustrated with more than 200 color photographs that clearly show leaves, flower stalks, fruits, and habitat. Chapters on loulu history, botany, ecology, conservation, uses, and propagation and culture provide essential background information for readers, whatever their level of interest or expertise. In the appendices, they will find a concise summary of loulu, lists of species by island, and an illustrated compendium of exotic, naturalized palms of Hawai‘i and relatives of loulu found throughout the South Pacific.

As interest in growing and conserving native Hawaiian plants surges while their numbers and habitat continue to decline, Loulu: The Hawaiian Palm will be valued as one of the most comprehensive and thoroughly illustrated treatments of these exceptional plants.


Reviews about Loulu: The Hawaiian Palm (5):
Whitescar
THE guide to Hawaii's native Pritchardias. A must have for anyone interested in our unique palms here. Very well written, very informative, and a great reference.
terostr
Amazing, comprehensive resource. Just beginning to learn about our rare, endangered palms in Hawaii. Beautiful, detailed book with many pictures. A must buy for anyone into native Hawaiian plants!
Hamrl
This book is a must for palm lovers and botanists in Hawaii. Very informative!
Lanadrta
This book is NOT for palm enthusiasts. All photo captions list common name ONLY. Scientific names are listed in a table at the end of the book. I have a whole library of palm books and none force you look at a table at the end of the book to know which palm is pictured. There is good info in the book but forget looking at the photos and knowing which palm is shown. I had to relabel all photos with scientific names. This must be a JOKE that the author has played on us. Hold off buying this book until they republish it with scientific name captions.

I have been fascinated by loulu for years, but could not find a way to tell the different species apart short of taking a formal course in botany and learning the terms (for example, try differentiating, say P. remota from P. martii, by looking at Wagner, et al's "Manual of Flowering Plants of Hawaii"). Hodel's book is wonderful, and displays a remarkable sensitivity for the subject. For every nuance he has a photograph. With the aid of the book I can now make more sense of the Wagner's "Manual" (note that there are minor disagreements between Wagner and Hodel; I suspect those are simply the result of more study--Hodel suggests as much in a couple of places). My only negative comment is the maps: those showing species with a highly restricted range are a bit difficult to see (they should have toned down the intensity of the background colors). Overall, however, the book is very pleasing--the photo reproduction, printing, and paper quality are all excellent. Unlike one negative reviewer who didn't like the relegation of scientific names to one of the tables, I don't find the organization objectionable at all, now I have got used to it (it seems very probable that the scientific names might change further in any case: some loulu species seems to grade into others).
I especially like tables comparing true loulu to other fan palms such as P. pacifica. I once took my copy of Hodel to a local plant sale to show them that what they were selling was not Hawaiian but Fijian.
I hope they come out with a paperback version with a robust binding so I can take the thing out into the boonies.
