Bleeding Heart Vines bloom in Hainan Tropical Botanical Garden

An attractive plant native to Africa, the Bleeding Heart Vine can also be found in the Tropical Botanical Garden in Danzhou City, south China's Hainan Province. Compared with the white Bleeding Heart Vine, the red ones are somehow more cold tolerant, with glossy dark green leaves preferring full or partial sun.

Here are some photos taken by the CGTN Nature filming crew in Hainan.
