Jade Vine at the New York Botanical Garden

One of my favorite blooms at the New York Botanical Garden's Conservatory is the jade vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys). The jade vine is indigenous to the Philippines, where its tendrils scramble up tropical rain forest trees in an effort to seek out sunlight.
