Hoya pubicalyx 'Royal Hawaiian Purple'



I bought this one as an unrooted cutting in April 2000. Ever since I got it I've thought that this one and 'Red Button' are the same, but experts say they are not... It has narrower leaves than 'Red Button' and also more flecks. I've heard that this hoya is also known under the name Hoya pubicalyx 'Chimera', but 'Royal Hawaiian Purple' is the correct name.


Mine flowered the first time in August 2001 and has flowered quite a lot since then. Just like 'Red Botton' this hoya has flowers that can be all pink with white coronas and almost black with red coronas. I grow this one in a window that gets plenty of morning sun. It's a nice hoya that gets pink/red new leaves in the sun.
