Jade Vine


Jade vine is native to the Philippines where it grows in tropical rain forests. 
The aquamarine color of jade vine's flowers is nearly unique in the plant kingdom. Hanging amidst lush tropical foliage, the flowers are practically luminescent. Jade vine is an evergreen twining vine with thick woody stems an inch or more in diameter and growing to 70 ft (21.3 m) or more in length. Jade vine is cultivated in Hawaii for the flowers which are used in leis.
