This is a special Hoya kerrii with fuzzy leaves. This species of kerrii is not very easy to find. It also has heart-shaped leaves like all the other kerrii's. The leaves get much larger then the regular H. kerrii and the leaves are fuzzy on both sides. The flowers are also pubescent. The flowers are also similar to the other kerrii's. They are very pretty and sometimes have a brown caramel sap coming out of the flowers. They actually smell like caramel too! You can see these flowers during the spring and summer time. It grows as a big vine or makes a nice, vigorous hanging basket plant. Rare and different hoya to add to your collection with very pretty foliage and flowers!
