Jade vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys)     The Jade vine climbs in the high tropical greenhouse.     Duco de Vries

The Jade vine originally grows in tropical forests in the Philippines. This climbing plant can grow up to 18 meters long. The hanging clusters sometimes consist of 75 blue-green flowers. In nature these clusters can sometimes grow up to 3 meters long. Not to be missed during the spectacular but short flowering period in early summer (April-May).
