Hoya camphorifolia Warburg

 

 


 

This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 1904.

 

It's a climbing hoya, but also suitable for growing hanging. The leaves are ovate and rather pointy and measure about 7-10 cm long and 3-4 cm wide with clear lighter veins. Sometimes the leaves get red spots when grown in full sun. It's a small hoya that is easily controlled on a small support and the foliage gets thick quite fast.

 

The flowers are very small, but it flowers often as "compensation". Each flower is about 7 mm and there are about 20-25 flowers in an umbel. The corolla is pink ant the corona is darker with a yellow center. The flowers last only 1-2 days, have no nectar and are almost never fully opened. The smell is not too pleasant; to me it was like sweaty old socks! I'm grateful the smell isn't strong...
