Hoya obovata is one of our very favorite specimen plants. It has large, deep green oval-shaped leaves, often speckled with flecks of white and pink. The leaves emerge on long tendrils that shoot out dramatically from the base of the plant. Over time, these vines grow to be quite long, eventually setting sweet-smelling flowers that look like little clusters of pink stars. Hoya obovata will happily climb up a stake or trellis, or set your pot in a hanger or on high shelf and let the vines cascade.
Like all members of the Hoya genus, Hoya obovata is semi-succulent, with thick waxy-leaves, flowers and stems -- in fact, Hoyas are sometimes called "waxplant" or "waxflower." Drought tolerant, and perfect for bright, indirect light, Hoya obovata is easy to care for, an essential member of any houseplant collection.
Ships in a 6" plastic nursery pot with clip-on hanger. Leaves measure 3-4" long and 2-3" wide. Each specimen has multiple vining stems, approximately 8-10" in length. Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur.
*Limited quantity available. Hand thrown ceramic planter sold separately. Includes detailed care instructions.
