Hoya pubicalyx ‘Royal Hawaiian Purple’ - SOLD

Fabulous foliage throughout the year is a hallmark of this cultivar. Bright, indirect light or bright shade outdoors best brings out the intensely-purpled and silver-flecked leaves.

Hoya pubicalyx is an endemic species of the Philippines.

Several references also list this cultivar as synonymous with the H. pubicalyx cultivar ‘Chimera’.

Hi Silvia, you bet! I only have this one for sale now, and my smallish stock plant. When I propagate it again, I’ll absolutely set one aside for you.

Doing a mild level of research tonight while posting this item, and I really got lost in it. I’ve really become enamored with this genus. I only have three in my collection so far. It’s really blowing my mind, the diversity that exists within it.

Take care!

Hi Corey, The listing shows this is still available, but the comments exchange above leads me to believe maybe it’s not available?
