The Jade Vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys) is a native of the tropical forests of the Phillipines. Its flowers are the color of jade, and hang in bunches up to 90 cm long; each clawlike flower is about 7½ cm long. In its native Philippines, the jade vine’s flowers are pollinated by bats.The rare and beautiful green jade flower is distinct for its blue-green petals and navy-purple center.
