Hoya carnosa is a climbing species often called wax plant for the waxy look and feel of its leaves. It brings both color and fragrance to the home with clusters of dainty blooms over a long period. The blooms are most fragrant in the evening. Some varieties have variegated leaves for added interest when not in bloom.
Looks great grown in containers and hanging baskets. Ideal for growing in a container and training to a small trellis. Potted Hoya plants can be grown outdoors in the summer and brought back inside when temperatures are expected to fall below 50 degrees F (10 degrees C). Can be grown outdoors year-round in frost-free climates, in a pot or in the ground.
