    The Red Jade Vine is a decorative plant grown in gardens of Hawai'i. Native to New Guinea, the Red Jade is a vine that thrives in rainforests. The woody vine has vivid orange-red flowers that are 3 to 4 inches long and curved. Each stalk can have 50 to 100 flowers.

    Unlike Red Jades distant cousin, Blue Jade Vine, the Red Jade flower is rarely used in making Leis because the flower has tiny little stiff hairs that can irritate the skin.
