"The Ti plant was brought to Hawaii by the Polynesians as a source of food," shares Patrice. "Then known as “Ki,” the plant was considered sacred to Lono, the Hawaiian God of Fertility and Laka the Goddess of Hula. The plant was used as a symbol of high rank and power. Because it was thought to have the ability to ward off evil spirits, it was often used as a border plant to protect homesteads. Today this graceful flowering plant comes in varieties of colors. It grows tall in gardens of homes and businesses throughout Hawai`i."
