Hoya 'Sunrise' Miyashiro






Hoya 'Sunrise' is a cross between Hoya lacunosa ssp. pallidiflora and Hoya obscura, hybridized by Michael Miyashiro in 1992. The leaves really do look like a cross between these two hoyas and the foliage is absolutely gorgeous! Hoya 'Sunrise' was published in Asclepios 91/2004.


The smooth leaves are rather dark green with visible veins and some flecks. They are about 5-9 cm long and 2-3 cm wide. Some leaves look more like lacunosa and some more like obscura and the mix of all this and the fact that the leaves are bigger than lacunosa but smaller than obscura makes this a really lovely hoya.


The flowers are also a combination of lacunosa and obscura. They are white and revolute and just like obscura they turn pink when grown in bright light and/or sunshine. Each flower is about 5 mm and you'll find 10-20 flowers in each umbel. The flowers have a very nice perfume like fragrance and they last about a week.
