Hoya macgillivrayi Bailey

 

 


 

This hoya comes from north eastern Australia and it was described in 1914. The different clones are named after the places where they were found.

This is a twining hoya that needs lots of light to flower. It seems to grow in spurts and needs help to stay on its support. New vines break easily.

 

The leaves can get big, up to 20 cm long and 5-8 cm wide. They are dark green, thick without any spots and the center vein is very prominent. The thickness of the leaves seem to vary from clone to clone.

 

During the winter this is a hoya that should be kept on the dry side. However, when this hoya shows signs of buds it needs a lot of water and may not dry out.

 

The flowers can be anything from red to almost black in colour. The size of the cup shaped flowers seem to vary between 6 and 8 cm. You'll find anywhere from 4-15 flowers in an umbel. The fragrance is said to be like Gardenia with a hint of citrus and the flowers last up to 3 weeks.
