2022 Hoya and Succulents Sale
Hoyas, a.k.a. Waxflowers, make easy and forgiving tabletop, windowsill, and hanging basket specimens for a shaded porch, patio as well as brightly lit indoor settings but will prefer no direct sunlight unless it is very early or very late in the day or a little filtered sunlight. Our sale also includes some other odd and unusual tropicals that can be enjoyed indoors or out. To learn more about how to care for succulents indoors please see our Cactus and Succulent Growing Guide. While supplies last!
The clusters of fragrant starry white flowers with a touch of contrasting red to burgundy at the base of the corona may be produced throughout the year under warm tropical conditions. The sweet and almost honey-like, spicily fragrant flowers attract butterflies, hummingbird moths, and other pollinators. The Australian Waxflower, Hoya australis, is an exceptionally vigorous growing, twining, evergreen, tropical vine with glossy rounded ovate foliage and burgundy new growth. It naturally wants to climb and the vines can reach 30' long if offered support but it can also easily be trained to a small 3' high trellis or as a hanging basket specimen. This appears to be one of the easier to grow species and is reported to tolerate some cool sunlight although the leaves may become more olive or yellowish green than the typical deep green coloration under high light conditions.
