Hawaii’s weather is summer-like all through the year. Even during the “chilliest” months of January and February, daytime highs average in the upper 70s or lower 80s in Fahrenheit. (That translates to around 26/27 degrees Celsius.)Β With this lovely warm weather, the Hawaiian Islands make a great home for tropical flowers to bloom all through the year.

What kinds of blossoms are you likely to see flourishing in Hawaii all through the year? Let’s take a look at several examples.
