Difference between krimson queen and princess

eclipse3June 24, 2006

Well, I have been lurking on here for the last couple of weeks, and I just want to say thanks. Thanks for getting me so interested in hoyas that I spent my breakfast cash on a darn plant this morning! Who needs to eat anyway right? Well, anyway, I am wondering how to tell the difference between a krimson princess and a krimson queen. The little hoya I bought this morning has some white and pinkish leaves and the rest are variegated. I am wondering if it falls into one of these categories. Sorry no pic right now. I am at work (OOPS:o)) I will try to get a good pic maybe later today or tomorrow, but I appreciate any comments in the meantime.

Hi and welcome North Dakota, sorry that you contacted our hoya disease and you should also know there is no known cure.

Now to your question, the Krimpson Queen and the Krimson Princess are both carnosas and clones of the original carnosa.

The queen is the standard varigated version meaning the center of the leaf is green and the edges are cream colored.

The princess is the reversed varigated or "rubra" version that has the cream in the center and green edges. You will find that many hoyas and in fact other plants as well have these two variations
Original carnosa
carnosa "Krimson Queen"
 carmosa "Krimson Princess"

The red or pink you find on the leaves will almost always fade to cream as the leaf matures.
