Hoya dickasoniana P.T. Li

 

 


 

 

This hoya comes from Nepal (Himalaya) and India and it was published in 1994. It's also known as Hoya wee-bella, but the name dickasoniana was published first so that's the name that should be used...

 

This is a hoya best suited for growing hanging, but it can take up quite a lot of space since the vines grow quite long before they bend down from the weight. It can look a bit sprawling. The leaves are only 1-1.5 cm long and 5-7 mm wide and they are almost folded along the center vein. The medium/dark green leaves often comes three and three at the nodes, but also two and two.

 

The almost flat flowers have white corolla and pink corona. You'll find 6-8 flowers in an umbel and each flower measures about 2 cm in diameter and doesn't produce much nectar. The flowers last about a week, sometimes longer. The fragrance is nicely fresh, but it's not very strong so you'll have to stick your nose in them to sniff them!
