Hoya pentaphlebia Merrill




This hoya comes from the Philippines and it was described in 1918.


This hoya has rather big leaves, about 10-17 cm long and 7-12 cm wide and there are some flecks. The leaves are of some green colour, but my plant is more red than green. This hoya has among the most gorgeous foliage I have ever seen! The leaves can get really big too. The biggest om my relatively young plant is 12x17 cm and can be seen on the next page.

The flowers turned out to be a very nice surprise. They are flat, have yellow corolla and white corona. They are about 2 cm each and produce little nectar. The fragrance was something else too. I found this hoya to smell heavenly of SOMETHING! I couldn't put my finger on WHAT the fragrance was like at first, but it's a lot like lavender... The downside of these flowers is that they only lasted about 3 days.
