Hoya cembrae or odorata or something else!



I bought this hoya as a rooted cutting in May 2002 from Botanova in northern Sweden. I had read that the flowers were white and it was supposed to have a really nice fragrance, so it was a hoya I just had to have in my collection. It didn't grow much for the first year, but then it grew a lot. I noticed the first small buds early in December 2004, but since it was dark I didn't think the flowers would develop. But they did, quite a lot of them too. The fragrance was very nice, but not as strong as I thought it would be. After that first time it has bloomed with a lot of flowers at the same time! With many flowers you notice the fresh fragrance in the room... In May 2006 this hoya bloomed with a lot of flowers and the fragrance was really nice and not too strong!

I bought this hoya under the name Hoya odorata, but there are those who think the correct name should be Hoya cembrae. To me it doesn't matter much, it's a beautiful hoya!
