Jasmine in Hawaii
Jasmine in Hawaiian is called pikake which is also the Hawaiian name for peacock. Both flower and bird were favorites of Crown Princess Kaʻiulani (1875-1899).
In modern day Hawaii, jasmine’s heavenly fragrance is admired through the pikake lei. The pikake lei is often bestowed to beautify and distinguish loved ones at weddings, graduations, and other auspicious events.
