Exotic plants

Post by Ria on Thu May 12, 2016 12:41 am

I cam across my first jade vine on the south east Coast of Africa,
I was ore struck, the flowers were the size of the humans, this particular vine was situated in a garden centre surrounding a courtyard cafe, it's something I can't forget I unfortunately had not got a camera with me, so have found the ones below, if anyone has the right environment , I recommend grow one, there just stunning to top it off there were little colourful birds hovering and feeding from the flower heads.
