The Blue Jade Vine (also called a Green Jade Vine) is a spectacular vine, native to the Philippines. The vine itself has a thick woody trunk, which branches out with leaves that are a waxy light green. A vine left untrimmed can quickly reach lengths of up to 75 feet.
The flowers of the Blue Jade are extremely vivid. Dropping from the vine itself a stalk off flowers can reach over 5 feet in length and can have 50 to 100 flowers. Each flower is 2 to 4 inches, curved and very durable. The flowers are all a stunning blue-green and are often used in Leis.
The Blue Jade was brought into the islands as a decorative plant. Because it is a vine, it can take over if not constantly pruned. However there is no indication of Blue Jade becoming invasive.
A similar looking distant cousin is the Red Jade Vine which has vivid bright red flowers.
