- n. In Polynesia, Thespesia populnea, a widely spread tropical tree belonging to the mallow family, with broadly ovate, entire, pointed leaves, and showy yellow hollyhock-like flowers which change to a purplish-pink color on withering. The heart-wood, which is hard, smooth-grained, and durable, is used by the Hawaiians for making bowls, or ‘calabashes,’ for holding poi. The Samoans use it in boat-building. Also called Polynesian rosewood. See Thespesia (with cut) and banalo.
