Pua ?ala reaches a height of 15 m and has a succulent, trunk-like stem that tapers from the base. The oval-shaped leaves are 622 cm long and 115 cm wide and form a rosette on the top of the plant.

The Alula, or Molokai Ohaha, is found on the windward sea cliffs of Molokai between Halawa and Kalaupapa.
