The legend says that one day Pele met a handsome warrior named Ohia
and she asked him to marry her. Ohia, however, had already pledged his
love to Lehua. Pele was furious when Ohia turned down her marriage
proposal, so she turned Ohia into a twisted tree.
was heartbroken, of course. The gods took pity on Lehua and decided it
was an injustice to have Ohia and Lehua separated. They thus turned
Lehua into a flower on the Ohia tree so that the two lovers would be
forever joined together.
So remember, Hawaiian folklore says that if you pluck this flower you are separating the lovers, and that day it will rain.
