Scientific name: Hoya kerrii 'Variegata'

This is an artistic representation of the variegated Hoya Kerrii. Also known as the Sweetheart Hoya, it gets its common name from it's charming heart-shaped leaves that grow on its vines. Its leaves are large and plump (as it's a semi-succulent), and the variegated cultivar in particular has splashes of light yellow on the edges of the leaves. Sweetheart hoya may be familiar to many in their single leaf form, often sold around Valentine's Day, which are propagated in such a way that they remain a single leaf forever. These are the more difficult to find full plant, with active growth. Over time, this slow grower can have long trailing or climbing vines, and even flower!

These are healthy specimens in a 4" grow pot, each with several large leaves on one or more vines, ensuring it will continue to grow. This is a special and hard-to-find hoya. Only available for in-store pickup. We recommend you come by the shop in person to check out this special plant.
