Māmane (Hawaiian language) is a shrub of Hawai'i in the Sophora genus. It is suitable for gardens.

It is highly polymorphic, growing as a shrub or tree, and able to reach a height of 15 m (49 ft) in tree form. It is grow fast in every island of Hawaiian archipelago, so botanists describe many local forms including S.unifoliolata Hawaiian honeycreeper visits mamane sucking nectar, If mamane were to disappear from Hawai'i it would take with it the palila bird, which is also endangered due to the lack of enough māmane trees. Loxoides bauilleui, palila, feeds on unripe seeds of the māmane
