Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Red Jade Vine, New Guinea Creeper
Origin: New Guinea
Vine or creeperFull sunModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Amazing long cascading clusters of brilliant red flowers chained together to form a 3' to 4' long raceme of splendour. It's much rarer than its distant cousin (blue/green jade vine) but is very popular in gardens that accommodate this vine. Origin is New Guinea but flourishes in tropical to semi tropical regions as well. A must for the serious collector! Roots must be in shade. A very large, woody climber. Vivid scarlet or flame colored, in a long inflorence. Can be used to climb a large tree or a very large pergola. A magnificent vine, one you will never forget once you have seen it! Just remember, it does need room to spread.

More cold hardy than Green Jade Vine (Strongylodon).

The red-flowered species of Asia and the Pacific
Several species of Mucuna have red or orange flowers. In Asia and the Pacific they are found in Celebes, the Moluccas, New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. In this area the following species have been described: M. bennettii, M. elegans Merr. & L.M.Perry, M. kraetkei Warb., M. miniata Merr., M. novo- guineensis, M. peekelii Harms and M. warburgii. Mucuna ben- nettii and M. novo-guineensis have often been confused. A good character in which these species differ is found in the stipellae: absent in M. bennettii, present in M. novo-guineensis and M. warburgii. Mucuna bennettii differs from M. novo-guineensis and M. warburgii also in shape and size of the terminal leaf- lets and number of ovules. Mucuna novo-guineensis and M. warburgii differ in shape of terminal leaflets, size of the calyx and number of ovules. Harms (1920) suggests in the descrip- tion of M. peekelii that it may be a smaller flowered variant of M. kraetkei, according to Verdcourt (1979) M. peekelii is a synonym of M. warburgii and M. kraetkei a synonym of M. novo-guineensis. We think that M. elegans and M. miniata, both probably lacking stipellae, are only slightly smaller flowered forms of M. bennettii occurring at the most western and most eastern ends of it distribution area.
For Flora Malesiana we accept just three red-flowered Mucuna species: M. bennettii (incl. M. elegans and M. miniata) from Celebes, the Moluccas, New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, M. novo-guineensis (incl. M. kraetkei) from the Moluccas (Hal- mahera) and New Guinea and M. warburgii (incl. M. peekelii) from New Guinea.

Red jade vine will eventually cover & then smother(kill) trees. Very difficult to get rid of, grows roots where it touches the ground. Absolutely must be contained.

I would love to buy the Red Jade Vine as well as the black Jade vine, but I live in South Africa. Do you ship to South Africa? If so, then I'll place my order.
