Hoya bordenii Schlechter

 

 


 

This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 1906.

 

Another hoya that is best grown on a support. It needs some help to stay on its own support, but this is not a big problem since it doesn't grow very fast. Cuttings can take long before they start growing, but this foliage is worth waiting for! The narrow leaves are 10-18 cm long and 3-5 cm wide. The leaf edges are curved inwards and the underside is often red. The prominent veins on these often red leaves make the foliage even prettier!

 

The flowers are reflexed, about 2 cm, dark red with even darker coronas and you'll find about 15 flowers in an umbel. The flowers only last a few days, but that's compensated by frequent flowers during the summer. At least, that's what I've read...
