Jade Vine, Strongylodon macrobotrys

Blooming in our  Conservatory until the end of May: With a hue so vibrant it has to be seen to be believed, the Jade Vine features claw-like flowers and is endangered in the wild. Don’t miss this photo-worthy bloom, which can be found growing along the glass wall near the left-hand side of our Conservatory.

Sapphire tower, Puya alpestris

Blooming in May: This show-stopping plant draws crowds from miles away just to sneak a peek at the awe of its flower. Its dark metallic-like turquoise petals sharply contrast yet complement the vibrant orange anthers, with a flower stalk reaching upwards of 5 feet tall.
