Strongylodon macrobotrys - Jadevine - Leguminosae

               The climbing species Strongylodon macrobotrys was discovered as late as 1937 in the

               Philippines. Its flower color is one of  the most special in the plant kingdom and the hanging

               inflorescence can reach a length of 1m. Also interesting - the flowers are pollinated by bats.

               Plants are available in limited quantities only and must be shipped with soil or coconut material on the roots to keep them alive.
