Very unique vine that I photographed on Maui, Hawaii.
The flowers have such an amazing colour and shape it’s hard to believe they are real.
It is a spectacular vine, with a thick woody trunk, which branches out with leaves that are a waxy light green. Dropping from the vine itself a stalk off flowers can reach over 5 feet in length and can have 50 to 100 flowers. Each flower is 2 to 4 inches, curved and very durable.
Flowers have a beautiful seagreen color that is almost beyond description. The bloom is a pendant, clustered birds beak like inflorescence up to 4 1/2 ft. long and puts on a spectacular show when in bloom. This Philippine Native is often used in Lei making.
The endangered species is under threat by deforestation in its natural habitat in the Philippines.

Canon XT, f/13, 1/100sec, ISO-400, focal length 100mm.
