This is an Ed Gilding hybrid. The leaves are not fuzzy like most eriostemma hoyas, these are very shiny and smooth.
This Hoya produces spectacular star shaped flowers. They are big, up to 2" diameter flowers and very waxy/plastic looking. Flowers are yellow and pinkish and they have a pleasant spicy scent. We are amazed by this hoya for being such a good bloomer. It also didn't take that long to bloom for me, as most hoyas in the Eriostemma section do.
This hoya grows really fast during the warm months and it is grown best in very bright shade/filtered light. I do recommend it more for someone that has a greenhouse or that can grow outside in a tropical climate as it can get big/long and likes very good light to bloom. I do not recommend it for someone that has limited space or lives in a very cold climate. This Hoya is very cold sensitive. It is not hard to grow, but I do not recommend it for beginners.

**Hoya cv. Ruthie likes more water than the average succulent Hoya. Keep in mind that Hoyas that "like" water, do not like being soaked during the cold months. Do not over-water in the winter time.

We grow our Hoyas outside in south Florida and this information is based on growing in our location only.
