The Green Jade Vine
Strongylodon macrobotrys is native to the Philippines and grows quite well in South Florida. The unique claw-shaped flowers are bat pollinated in their native habitat. However, itis the unique color of its flowers that fascinate anybody who has ever seen it. A true jade green color like the gemstone. Truly a very unusual color in the plant world. The flower spikes can be 2-3′ long so the vine needs to grow up a large trellis or pole to get the ultimate effect of its blooms.
Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this vine in stock.
