Charpentiera is a flowering plant genus in the pigweed family, Amaranthaceae. It consists of five species endemic to Hawaii, where they are known as papala, and one species found only on the island of Tubuai in the Austral Islands. All species are trees, some reaching more than 10 metres (33 ft) in height. [more]
Herbs or subshrubs. Stem erect or ascending. Leaves opposite, petiolate, margin entire.
