Green Jade (Strongylodon macrobotrys)

The red variety of this flower is oten referred to as, nuku I'iwi, the beak of the I'iwi bird.
This is due to its close resemblance to the curved beak of the scarlet red I'iwi (honeycreeper) bird found only in Hawaii.
The green blue color is relatively rare among flowers.
