Abstract: The Eke silversword, Argyroxiphium caliginis, is a rosette plant
endemic to the summit bogs of Eke Crater and Puu Kukui, West Maui, Hawaii.
On 2 November 1985, a belt transect across Eke Crater was used to estimate the
population of silverswords on the summit bog. Total population of the Eke
silversword on Eke Crater was estimated to be about 76,000 plants. Although the
plant has been described as a branching shrub that reproduces vegetatively, the
majority of the individuals in the sampled population of the Eke silversword on
Eke Crater were unbranched, monocarpic plants that appeared to reproduce by
seed.
