Hoya obscura-where I can obtain?

victorianvillagedudeFebruary 26, 2007

Does anyone know where I can obtain a Hoya obscura in or near Columbus, Ohio. I can't find it locally and it's too cold for far away nurseries to ship it. Thank you.

This is not a common mass-produced species. You may be better off waiting a month or so and then ordering it by mail.

Glasshouse Works is in Ohio, but way down south by the WV border. I think ispahan is right, unless there's a botanical garden nearby that you can beg a cutting from?

I've heard the fragrance on this one is excellent, so it's on my wishlist as well!

The fragrance of this one *is* excellent: pure, sweet, fruity and penetrating without any of the cloying, opressive heaviness that many hoya fragrances have. Just one open umbel can lightly and deliciously perfume an entire room. Mine has been constantly blooming under fluorescent lights since last March and has countless peduncles. It smells so good to me I almost want to eat it! :-)
