Introducing Hoya 'Patricia' - a breathtaking cross between Hoya darwinii and Hoya elliptica, created by the talented Antone Jones. This climbing or trailing plant boasts wiry stems and lush green leaves with delicate paler veins, which transform into stunning shades of red when exposed to more sunlight.
But the real showstopper here is the amazing flowers that bloom in dense clusters on short peduncles from spring to summer. The corolla lobes are curled back and covered in tiny hairs, with colors ranging from white to pinkish, while the erect corona lobes are a striking red to wine red. Each cluster typically contains 10 to 20 of these showstopping blooms, adding a touch of glamour to any indoor garden.
While slow to root and start growing as a cutting, Hoya 'Patricia' is a reliable grower and regular bloomer once established. To keep it thriving, place it in a warm and bright location where it can get plenty of light, but make sure to let the soil dry out between waterings. Don't miss out on the chance to add this stunning plant to your collection.
