Plant of the Month: Sausage tree is an exotic specimen and unique addition - West Hawaii Today
The seedpods as well as the flowers make this tree a striking addition to a Hawaiian landscape.
Known botanically as Kigelia africana, the sausage tree is one of about 100 species in the Bignoniaceae family that grow in Hawaiian gardens. Both the better-known jacaranda and gold trees are close relatives that are similar in size and have their own striking characteristics.
The sausage tree has long been cultivated in tropical locales around the world, but it did not arrive in Hawaii until the 1800s. By early 1900, several specimens were growing in parks and on campuses around Oahu. Mature specimens continue to grow and produce their sausage shaped seedpods in Honolulu on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus as well as in Ala Moana Park. Owing to its unusual features, interested gardeners started successfully propagating sausage trees and they are now growing throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Serving as an outstanding landscape feature, this interesting tree can be found on a few properties here in West Hawaii and is available in the landscape trade. If specimens are not available locally, seeds can be ordered online.
In her native Africa, the sausage tree has many uses. Though the fresh seedpod is not edible, once dried, roasted or fermented it has many culinary, cosmetic and medicinal applications. The seeds... Dec 10, 2020

Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transportation Associate Environmental Planner. After Anita passed in 2006,Howard eventually resumed travel in a Roadtrek motorhome, completing the last trip to Kearney, Nebraska by himself at age 97, where he was interviewed by the newspaper. Howard flew with Honor Flight to Washington D.C. and spoke to a 5th grade class in Carlsbad that had written letters to the veterans to read on the flight, befriended the teacher, and later attended the middle school graduation for the students. This was the subject of a local news story. Another story was about his flight on a B-25, his first since World War II. On a trip to Hawaii with aniece, he honored a relative killed on the U.S.S. Arizona at Pearl Harbor, his first visit there after the war.Howard worked hard to live as independently as he could, frequented the zoo, read extensively, and watched televised sports until COVID-19 forced him to replace them with old television westerns and more classic movies. A rerun of the original "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" which featured B-25s like he flew was rarely missed, along with "Catch-22", which he said captured some of the absurdities of the war. He still drove well, shopped, and balanced his checkbookuntil a few weeks before he passed.Howard is survived by his daughter, Michelle Dungan and her wife, Veronica Zerrer; numerous nieces and nephews; friends and former students whose lives he touched; and the family dog, Jacqui, who recently saved him from a bad fall by warning Veronica that he had a leg cramp and was trapped on the steep slope next to a vertical em...
