Jade Vine

Jade Vine

Locally known as Tayabak and internationally known with its scientific name Strongylodon macrobotrys, this elegant plant is a vine belonging to the order Fabales of the family Fabaceae and is endemic here in the Philippines. Too bad it is critically endangered because of habitat loss and decrease in the number of its usual pollinators (bats, wasps, and butterflies).
