Jade Vine in Philippines

mariava7March 14, 2006

I would just like to share this pic of a jade vine flower grown in the Philippines in my mother's garden. Beside it is my 8 year old daughter. This vine grows up a tree and blooms all year long.

Thank you peaseblossom! I think my mom says that the vine is like 3-4 years old. No she cannot get it to seed. She said that in other provinces it would seed and needs insects to polinate it. She sprays in her nursery so that might be one of the causes, killing beneficial insects too. Some growers are successful in propagating this plant through cuttings.

Wow, can't wait to be able to grow this--looks like a fast grower! The red version looks amazing as well.

Here is a link that might be useful:

Yes it is ...is that the New Guinea Creeper? I remember seeing a big specimen of that plant in Manila and it is more into orange than red. Where was that red one grown?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think Mucuna bennetti is usually called "Red Jade Vine" and Mucuna novo-guineensis is usually called "New Guinea Creeper." The one in the pic was grown in Maui, Hawaii, according to the site!
