Hoya arnottiana Wight

 

 


 

This hoya comes from India, quite high up in the Himalaya regions and it was described in 1834.

 

It's a climbing hoya with rather big dark green leaves, about 8-12 cm long and 6-8 cm wide. The leaves have a prominent vein along the middle and no silver flecks.

 

The flowers, which last about 10 days, are white with white corona and pale yellow center.  Each flower is about 1.5 cm and there are about 25-30 flowers in each umbel. The fragrance was said to be different and not so pleasant and it really WAS really different! It was not very strong, but when you came close to the flowers it smelled a little like rotting bananas. The flowers produce quite a lot of nectar and they last almost two weeks.
