Hawaiian Jade... for Bernice and James...

Isn't this gorgeous? This is a Turquoise Jade vine blooming at a friends house, the color is indescribable! Turquoise, baby blue, green, purpley blue, etc... The first time I saw a Jade Lei I thought it was dyed (like they sometimes do with carnations) because the colors where just unreal. Than I saw an arch over a driveway in Kaumana Hawaii and the vine had grown over it with dozens of the 2-4 foot bloom bracks hanging down over your car as you enter the property, just beautiful! A rarer site is the Red Jade, just as striking but much harder to grow. A nursery in Orchid Land Estates Hawaii has a 20-30 foot stretch of fence line covered with the red blooming plant, wow! It is a very striking display...

This blog post is for Bernice & James...may you find all of the blooms you desire and deserve in Hawaii, Welcome!
