'Oha Wai (Clermontia)

Clermontia are fairly common branching shrub-form lobelioids in some mid-elevation areas. They're usually quite attractive plants, with neatly arranged sprays of bright green leaves. Some species feature large bird-pollinated flowers, and fruits that the birds like to eat. Some species of native fruit flies complete their life cycles in the flowers and fruit of clermontias.

Clermontia species on Hawai'i:
Hilo & Puna - Parviflora, Peleana, Montis-Loa, Lindseyana, Pyrularia;
Puna & Ka'u - Hawaiiensis;
Kau & Kona - Clermontioides;
Hamakua & Kohala - Drepanomorpha, Kohalae, Calophylla, Waimeae

I have been unable to sort out the Kohala species so far, so there are several photos of them below.
