Hoya albiflora Zipp. ex. Blume

 

 


 

 

This hoya comes from Indonesia (Java) and it was described in 1848, or rather the Hoya albiflora was described in 1848 by Zipp. ex. Blume. This hoya reminds very much of Hoya magnifica, but this one is said to have a pleasant fragrance!

 

It's a climbing hoya with rather big light green pubescent leaves, about 10-15 cm long and 5-7 cm wide. The leaves have visible veins and they are pubescent on both sides. The leaves are rather soft and have no flecks. A rather fast growing hoya that needs a lot of space and likes to grow where it's warm.

 

The flowers are completely white, star shaped and almost flat. Each flower is about 4-5 cm and you'll find 5-15 flowers in an umbel. The fragrance is said to be wonderful, but I haven't found out what the fragrance is like... yet!
