Hoya kerrii, or Hoya Hearts, are tropical succulent vines. They belong to the Dogbane family, Apocynaceae. Plants in Apocynaceae have latex sap, are usually fragrant, and are high in alkaloids (esp. Iridoids). The aromatic compounds produced by the flowers are prized as fragrances in perfumes, and the flowers are also cultivated as ornamentals in warmer climates. Hoya flowers are fragrant and waxy-looking, with the fragrance changing with the age of the flower.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
