Three Relatively Rare Tropical Vines

The cold winter was hard on most of our tropical plants. Take a look at the three vines last year.

Jade vine Strongylodon macrobotrys This flower was the first page on this blog. Last year it started to bloom in January and it bloomed to April. Last year we had 100 stems of flowers. This week we have 3 stems.

Tecomanthe hilli This is the time for the main flowering. I will be lucky if we much more then this. I should be happy that the vine is alive.

Clerodendrum x speciosum - Java Glory Vine This vine started to bloom in January. It was late, but it had a normal amount of flowers.
