Pikake is the Hawaiian name for a jasmine, Jasminum sambac, which
is one of about a dozen Jasminum species grown in Hawaii as ornamentals. The name is adapted from the word “peacock,” because the Hawaiian Princess Kaiulani reportedly was fond both of this flower and the bird, according to Marie Neal (In Gardens of Hawaii).
J. sambac is known as sampaguita in the Philippines, where it is the national flower, gunda mallige in India, mo li in parts of China, and Arabian jasmine in the mainland USA. It is grown commercially in India, Thailand, China, and the Philippines for its fresh flowers, which are also used to make perfume and as flavoring for tea.
In Hawaii, pikake is grown in landscapes and gardens and by commercial producers of lei flowers.
