Exotic Jade Vine

Jade Vine rainforest turquoise flower

Jade Vine

The clawlike flower, jade vine is a rare tropical plant that grow in rainforests. This endangered specie is originally from the Philippines. In reflection of its name the flower colors vary from sea green to turquoise color. The jade vine is found near damp forest areas along the streams. It can grow up to 18 meters long and its leaflets can grow up to 25 cm long.

This flower is stunning and the color is very refreshing. It is a shame that the jade vine has become rare this is unfortunate, and caused by the shortage of rainforests. I would love to go to the Philippines and see this beauty!
