The extraordinarily-coloured jade vine is bearing numerous pendent racemes, which hang beneath a canopy of foliage in the Glasshouses.
The individual racemes of this striking climber can reach 90cm in length, cascading beneath a canopy of evergreen, trifoliolate foliage. The individual flowers are a luminous jade green and resemble claws. These contain a pool of nectar to attract bat pollinators in their native habitat in Philippine rainforests. Reaching 20m in height this member of the pea family (Fabaceae) is under threat in the wild due to rainforest destruction.
