Hoya Carnosa

Wax Plant : Hoya Carnosa in Bloom

From what I am told these plants need time to adjust to its new location and to not be alarmed or give up on this beauty because there may not be any blooms on it until two or three years.

The hoya in these photos are of a hoya taken from my mother’s plant collection some seven years ago. My patience was running thin.For the very first time since taking residence in my garden it finally bloomed. So of course… I had to share in the excitement.
