Hoya citrina Ridley




This hoya comes from Malaysia and it was described in 1922.


It's a hoya  that seems to get big. Best suitable for grown on a support because of the large leaves. The medium green leaves are 10-15 cm long, 8-10 cm wide and have visible veins and some flecks. The leaves actually remind me of Hoya glabra.


I've read that this hoya has pale yellow citrus fragrant flowers.  I have also read that the flowers are white... The reflexed flowers are 1-1.5 cm and you'll find 20-30 flowers in each umbel. My plant had white flowers with very pale yellow corolla lobes. The corona is white with red and yellow in the center. The fragrance was quite strong and quite "fresh" and really nice. The flowers lasted about 4 days.
