Hoya cumingiana Callery ex. Decne




This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 1844.


This hoya is best to trim around a trellis or grown as a hanging basket. Trimming it around a trellis needs a lot of help and sometimes a little force, but it can be worth the effort. The leaves are small, elliptic, about 2-3 cm long and 1.5-2 cm wide. The leaves are light green and have a rather dull surface.


The flowers mostly grow at the tips of the vines and the colour is yellow, sometimes closer to orange and they have a red center. Each umbel has 7-10 reflexed flowers, about 1.5 cm and have a citrus fragrance mixed with coconut. They last about a week and have very little nectar. The peduncles fall off after each flowering.
