In the sweet sanctuary of this shade we heard the birds
the leaves in the breeze

And in one divine moment we felt our hearts melt
Suddenly we knew how nature prayed - Silent Lotus

In the Hawaiian islands the coconut palm is called Niu . . you may read more about them here . . . . and on Wikipedia . . We have many beautiful varieties of Palm trees on Maui . . this collection includes several species of Coconut Palms . Travellers Palm Ravenala madagascariensis . . coconuts and palm fronds . . The coconut palm (also, cocoanut), Cocos nucifera, is a member of the family Arecaceae (palm family). It is the only accepted species in the genus Cocos. The term coconut can refer to the entire coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which, botanically, is a drupe, not a nut. The spelling cocoanut is an archaic form of the word. The term is derived from 16th-century Portuguese and Spanish coco, meaning "head" or "skull", from the three small holes on the coconut shell that resemble human facial features. Found throughout the tropic and subtropic area, the coconut is known for its great versatility as seen in the many domestic, commercial, and industrial uses of its different parts. Coconuts are part of the daily diets of many people. Coconuts are different from any other fruits because they contain a large quantity of "water" and when immature they are known as tender-nuts or jelly-nuts and may be harvested for drinking. When mature, they still contain some water and can be used as seednuts or processed to give oil from the kernel, charcoal from the hard shell and coir from the fibrous husk. The endosperm is initially in its nuclear phase suspended within the coconut water. As development continues, cellular layers of endosperm deposit along the walls of the coconut, becoming the edible coconut "flesh". When dried, the coconut flesh is called copra. The oil and milk derived from it are commonly used in cooking and frying; coconut oil is also widely used in soaps and cosmetics. The clear liquid coconut water within is a refreshing drink. The husks and leaves can be used as material to make a variety of products for furnishing and decorating. It also has cultural and religious significance in many societies that use it (such as here on Maui and throughout the Hawaiian Islands) . . Cocos nucifera is a large palm, growing up to 30 m (98 ft) tall
