Hoya diptera Seemann

 

 


 

This hoya comes from the Fiji Islands and it was described in 1866.

 

This is an all green climbing/twining hoya, but would also be suitable as a hanging plant. The ovate leaves are light green and quite dull on the surface. They don't have very visible veins, very few flecks, are about 4-7 cm long and 2-3.5 cm wide. It's a fast growing hoya and the foliage gets nice and thick really fast. Almost too thick since it's easy to miss the flowers!

 

The flowers can be totally yellow, but most pictures I've seen show flowers with a red center of the corona. Each flower is flat, about 2 cm and there are 10-15 flowers in each umbel. The flowers have a vague fresh fragrance if you stick your nose into them. They last about 8-10 days and produce no nectar. This is an easy bloomer!
