Here are a few that are blooming today.

Variegated Multiflora blooms for the first time - received in the fall. This one took about 2 weeks before the buds opened, I was beginning to think they weren't going to.

Dee,

My variegated multiflora went south as soon as I got it, dropped all it's leaves. The leafless stems remain fine, so I'm hoping it will leaf out this spring. We'll see...

As for magnifica, I put mine in a hanging pot, but it does seem to want to climb. I think it's going to be a big grower!

Nice plants Dee!

For some reason I did not think that I would like the variegated Hoya multiflora but that leaf on your plant changed my mind, really livens up the foliage on an otherwise kind plain Hoya.
Your Hoya magnifica looks very happy and healthy. I would put this one on a 24" - 48" trellis because it has nice big leaves and will appreciate the extra space/height to grow.

Mike I think you really need this multiflora, not only for the leaves but the flowers are different as well, they are a little more green than the picture shows and not the yellow as on the plain green.

That magnifica didn't grow for a couple months, just sat there, then I guess it decided it liked Florida and has been growing pretty fast.

Denise, if yours doesn't make it I can send you a piece later, but I think it will pick up for you now that it is getting warm.

thanks for the compliments all.

Dee
