The Hawaii state flower is the yellow hibiscus. All hibiscus are a part of the plant family Malvaceae. Many of the hibiscus are actually hybrids of Chinese hibiscus. This is one of the hybrids. But Hawaii does have their own versions, 7 or 9 of them that are native to Hawaii from ancient days. Two of them are likely extinct now. Can't be found anywhere. But the yellow hibiscus is one of the seven native versions found nowadays. I like the crinkled petals of the hibiscus as well as the bright colors, they make a very subject for an artist.
