    Default Hoya mindorensis .... again

    Well I realize you all have probably seen enough of this one, but as this is likely the last blooming I will see until next late spring (the winters here tend to be too dim for this to bloom much if at all) I thought I show it off. Plus the pics came out better this time.

    So here it is, Hoya mindorensis.

    Well I am glad you posted Pavel, I have not seen this flower on a hoya before. Truly remarkable detail esp with the fine frosting. Have had a decent perusal of a range of hoya available as cuttings but not took the plunge due to space priority................................yet! Whenever has a gardener been put off by lack of space? Where theres a will.....

    This has become my favorite Hoya... or at least until my imperialis decides to bloom... I love this one as this is always in bloom in my garden.
