Description

This unusual species produces gorgeous, fuzzy, star-shaped flowers. The corolla is yellow and the corona is white with a purple center. The flowers and whole cluster is large in comparison to Hoya carnosa. The flowers are also scented and I would describe it as spicy. This vigorous vine for your patio has thin, dark green leaves. This Hoya needs a little more water than other Hoyas, do not let it dry out like you would with a succulent. This Hoya is native to Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. I grow this Hoya easily, outside year round in S. FL and I keep it above 60 degrees F. I would recommend this species for a more experienced and patient Hoya grower looking for flowers that have that “wow factor”.

**Recommended to intermediate Hoya growers.
It is common for H. coriacea to develop black dots on some leaves from living outside in south FL at our nursery. The spots are not a disease and will not affect the plants health. The new growth will be clean if you grow it in a different climate.
