Hoya buotii Kloppenburg




This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 2002. I have read somewhere that this should be Hoya halconensis (Schlechter ex Kloppenburg), but I've also read that the one that's called sp. NS00-009 should be halconensis...


Hoya buotii is related to Hoya coriacea, but a lot smaller. The leaves are 4-7 cm long, 2-4 cm wide and visible veins. The center vein is lowered. This is a hoya that is best grown on a support since it twines some on its own.


The flowers are somewhat cupshaped / almost flat, about 2 cm. The very hairy flowers have yellow corolla and the corona is white with red in the middle. You'll find 8-10 flowers in an umbel. The flowers last about 5 days, produce no nectar and have a light fragrance of vanilla combined with something spicy. Hard to describe - better to experience!
