Jade Vine

Or Strongylodon macrobotrys.

Home of butterflies, pollinated by bats.  Closely related to kidney beans.  One of my all-time favorites.

Jeb knows I love it, gifting me this treasure pile on the console in my car.

    1. Yes! Flowers from a vine that grows – known as Jade Vine. Originally from the Phillipines but it grows in Hawaii. Not all that commonly found. The flowers can be made into leis, which are amazing. Thanks!
