HOYA OBSCURA AFF. 'PHILIP'
This is a really nice H. obscura clone. We got this hoya from our friend
Philip hence the name we gave it because we have not been able to find a
correct ID for it. Philip donated the original plant to Fairchild
Botanical Gardens in Coral Gables, FL (Miami) and today the hoya is on
display in the fairchild conservatory. We really like this hoya because
it is a great bloomer and blooms non-stop for us during the warmer
months. It is also an early bloomer! The flowers are similar to Hoya
obscura flowers, but they are much larger. The flowers are sometimes
pink and sometimes more of a beige color. You can see many flower
clusters on your plant at a time and they are fragrant. The leaves are
also similar, but they are a little bit darker green and don't get as
red as the regular H. obscura. The foliage is very pretty. Please feel
free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an idea or know the
ID of this hoya. Most of the pictures you see were taken at Fairchild
Gardens in the conservatory.
