Hoya hellwigiana Warburg




This hoya comes from Northeastern New Guinea and it was described in 1907. It comes from the Bonapas village area on the Ramu River.


This is a climbing hoya and so far it doesn't seem to twine, but then my plant is still small. The leaves are smooth, about 6-12 cm long and 3-6 cm wide. They have very clear, lighter green veins and they can get a red hint when grown in sun. A hoya with a very nice foliage!


The flowers have pale yellow/green corolla with darker tips and white corona. Each reflexed flower is 6-7 mm in diameter when fully reflexed. You'll find 20-30 flowers in each umbel and the flowers last only a couple of days and don't seem to produce any nectar. They have a vague very nice fragrance, but I can't really describe it...
