This incredibly beautiful and rare climbing plant originates from Réunion island, which lies a few hundred kilometers east of Madagascar. The orange-red clusters of flowers can be up to 40 cm long and are beautiful . In the Hortus of Leiden (Netherlands) there grows a turquoise species, Strongylodon macrobotrys (Jade vine), however this red species is just as spectacular.

Vorig jaar gezaaid en nu al een plant van meer dan 2 meter hoog. Deze klimplant groeit snel. (Gevoelig voor spint)
