Cadena De Amor

- Elicar - Saturday, October 13th, 2007 : goo

[previous] :: [next]

Cadena de Amor (Chain of Love) is a climbing plant that used to be found only in the countryside. www.flickr.com/photos/dinesh_valke/430465623/

Because it is very invasive, people do not want it in their gardens. However, in my last visit, I noticed them everywhere in Metro Manila: under bridges, on fences, etc. I was told that it is a result of an effort by the government to make Metro-Manila GREEN.

I took this series of photographs at the cemetery of my hometown, Sta. Cruz, Ilocos Sur. www.santa.gov.ph/ilocossur/cmstacruz.html

I find them very pretty.

Hey Jan, click on the flicker link and you will find out more about Cadena de Amor. You could also google it by its common name "coral vine". I tried to include some links in here but the new spam detector being tested is preventing me to do so.

Here is the notice I received:

wow! it looks nice

anon (222.100.33.183): 20th Apr 2011 - 13:57 GMT

yes, looks nice in city areas... but in countryside people really don't like it... you may get a feeling that snakes are hiding in it ready to "kiss" you anytime you come near it.

emily abonal: 26th Apr 2011 - 22:32 GMT

Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures. It can be a very nice hanging plant and it would be very useful to plant on vacant lots so that grass would not grow(saves you grasscutter use of gas and oil and manpower).

I like cadena d amor,,, how can I find and buy this plant can you send me any information how can I have this plant please.

Lynn: 6th Mar 2014 - 02:27 GMT

Yes it is edible. See KRIS show ABS-CBN 3/6/2014 channel 2 served as a salad w/ other edible flowers of the Philippines. The reason u see it mostly in cemeteries is bcuz people here in PH believe in the superstition that if u have it in ur yard it will cause a chain of death in the household n she didn't want me to b affected w/ the curse. I personally love it. It's beautiful n I love it's name. I had our helper get me some to plant in our yard. Reluctantly She got me not from the cemetery whew wit is abundant but from the mountain where she gets me some wild plants I ask of her. Now I have it on a trellis n when on bloom it is gorgeous. Hope this is helpful.
