Hoya pubicalyx 'Red Button'



I bought this one as a rooted cutting in August 1998. It was among the first cuttings that I ever bought. It grew fast and the foliage gets really nice when grown in sun. Some leaves get spots of red when young and some are completely red. From my own experience I have noticed that this pubicalyx has the least flecks on the leaves. Mine flowered for the first time in July 2000 and the flowers on this hoya can vary from pink with white coronas to completely black with red coronas. Most often the flowers are pink, with spots of black and the corona partly white and partly red. In one occation the whole umbel had almöst black flowers!


Since fall 2009 I've grown this hoya in a very sunny window and the whole plant is beautiful and flowers a lot and often.
