Because French Polynesia had such
prolific and exotic flowers, we've
dedicated a special page just to it.
However, we saw lots of other flowers in
the South Pacific. Take a look, keeping in
mind that it was difficult to identify many of
them because we had no good reference
books specific to the area. That said, very
few flowers are found only in one place in
the world, so we've done our best to
identify them as close as possible at least
by family. At Pitcairn, we used a series of
flower postage stamps for help with
identification.
