This was the first year of having a seven year old carnosa that I did not prune it back hard, and it has rewarded me with very fragrant blooms throughout the summer. I have been so enthralled with it that I have been building a hoya collection over the past three months. So first of all, thanks everyone! I have learned much from you and your photos are lovely. My dilemma: I have limited myself to just one more. I know, I know, I say that now...
I'd like my 'last' one to have huge, sculpted, somwhat rounded leaves and I'd like your recommendations as to what I should consider. I live in MN and will not be using artificial lights although I have great south/east/west windows.
I have been researching options and admit to be a bit confused. I've seen photos of a polystacha - I think posted by a Mike, and on a Swedish site - I think myhoyas - and it is breathtaking. I especially like the idea of red leaves. I have also seen photos of a macroyphylla - maybe posted by Denise - that looks wonderful. I also am wondering about a latifolia or aff latifolia that Joni sells. I've also been wondering about a pentaphlebia but am not sure about the leaf size.
Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas. I will post cuttings for exchange in that area although I would certainly pay for a cutting or small starter. Thanks!
