Strongylodon macrobotrys

The extraordinarily-coloured jade vine is bearing numerous pendent racemes, which hang beneath a canopy of foliage in the glasshouses.
Strongylodon macrobotrys, or jade vine, is a climbing member of the pea family, Leguminosae, which can reach 20m in height. Originating in the Philippines, the individual racemes can reach 90cm in length, and these hang beneath a canopy of evergreen, trifoliolate foliage. The individual flowers are aluminous jade green and resemble claws, which contain a pool of nectar which attracts bat pollinators in the jade vines' native habitat.
