Hoya cardiophylla Merrill




This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 1921. Some say this one is just another clone of Hoya incrassata, but for now I will keep it here.


This is a hoya that can get really big and need a large support from the beginning. The leaves tend to get paler green when grown in full sun. The leaves can get quite big, 10-15 cm long, 3-8 cm wide and they are mostly heart shaped at the base.


The flowers are 5 mm, reflexed and there can be 20-40 flowers in an umbel. The corolla is white/beige with yellow tips and the corona is white. I haven't noticed any strong fragrance, but it does resemble the fragrance of Hoya incrassata - only a lot weaker. The flowers last up to one week.
