    Stars within stars within stars … Mother Nature, the ultimate artist!

    • Mo Crow says:

      Hoyas are native to the tropics of Australia & SE Asia, one of the toughest plants ever when they are happy in a protected frost free morning sun spot, this is the first time it’s flowered in the 8 years since we first moved in
      NB for those living in cooler climates Hoyas can do well indoors in a sunny position, kept a bit dry in winter

    How lovely! A Star Is Born!

    We have a hoya in the house, but it has never flowered. Those blooms are strangely graphic, but very beautiful.

    Beautiful! I love how Hoya flowers resemble stars. I have one as a houseplant, it’s pretty much taken over the kitchen window and has bloomed a couple times.

    OYA! That Hoya! Mine is still a neophyte even at growing…………..

  7. Carol says:

    I had mine in a small pot for about 20 years and after a long wait it did flower really profusely. When we moved here I took a deep breath and planted it in the garden. Seven years ago … Now it’s flourishing, climbing a tree and looking great but I’m still waiting to see a flower! It seems to be a plant with a mind of its own.

    Your Hoya is gorgeous, I have never had the pleasure of growing one, must see if I can find one here

      (((Debbie))) Hoyas are so easy in the right spot, this one gets a bit of morning sun but is shaded by the Banksia integrifolia that we planted 9 years ago (the longest time either of has ever lived anywhere,
      Newtown has changed so much in that time, it’s getting very fancy & we know our days are numbered but still love it)
