Hoya ignorata - Newly described species

Posted by mikedahms London Ontario (My Page) on

A new species of Hoya has been described. This is a very unusual species, hopefully one that will become available to collectors. The small flowers are not what you would call showy but still a very interesting plant none the less.

The Flickr Hoya group also hosts several photos of this Hoya.

RE: Hoya ignorata - Newly described species

Aw man, I am in love. I can't find anything about it (other than the fact that apparently everyone who is NOT in the US has it) D: /heart hurting

And is its name a joke? B/c that's what I first thought when I saw your thread.

RE: Hoya ignorata - Newly described species

The name is real and I believe that it describes the fact that this species has a wide geographic distribution in South East Asia but has been pretty much ignored in a botanical sense. I am unsure if this species had been described as a member of another Genus in the Apocynaceae or if it really has just been ignored.

I would love to grow this one but only because it's so darn weird. Ok Time to start tracking this one down. Who wants to take a trip to Vietnam?

Vietnam is at the *top* of my list, Mike. Let's go! I agree that this is the most adorably weird Hoya I've seen in a long time. It makes my heart go thumpthumpthumpthump!!!

Love that the progression goes as so:

Step 1: Discover a plant that has characteristics that you find attractive.

Step 2: Amass a giant collection.

Step 3: Become fanatically interested in species that have different characteristics than the ones that originally attracted you to the plant.

LOL. I like small and pubescent, DS-70 is just perfect, I have nice lattice to hang my SMALL hoyas (thank you DH). Please tell me how I ended up buying H. kerri and obovata with leaves bigger than pots my minies are growing in and love it????
