Hi alwaysgardening,

Sure would love to see a picture of it...anyway you can post one? Hopefully someone here would be able to identify it with a picture...possibly? Sounds really pretty, must be pretty rare if your Mom doesn't know the name, You've definitely piqued my interest...Please post a photo if you can.

Some of the pubicalyx can be really dark, as well as several of the eriostemmas - might either the flower or leaves be "fuzzy"?

Like Pug said, post a picture if you can! We LOVE pictures around here!

So far, it sounds like the elusive IML 0278! hahaha We'll just have to see what it looks like, first. ;)

You know that particular hoya is my obsession, Pug!

Yes Carolyn, I think I might have heard about your obsession of the elusive IML 0278. I think you know where they have it, "if" that is the right one? If it is its quite pricey though, but if you gotta have it...you gotta pay the piper,lol...

Sent you the link.

The elusive hoya

Thanks, Pug . . . and yes, that is "the one." However, I absolutely REFUSE to pay that for it. I'll just try to get in on a Liddle order sometime in the future and see if I can get it. Addictions are soooooooooo difficult! (And expensive)

Wow, that's beautiful! Who has it?

Here is a link that might be useful: IML 0278

What about the dark flowered form of Hoya lobbii?

Maybe it is the Hoya pubicalyx 'Black Dragon'!? Would love to see a photo of the foliage and blooms as well!

I think of onychoides and archboldiana as all having very dark, almost black leaves in the right light. I see the IML 0278 is a macgillivrayii, which sometimes also looks nearly black, too. All of these types I find really attractive.

If you can't post a photo, Sara, I'd look up these names and see if any match. But do get back to us either way and let us know what it is.

Hi Kelly, Asiatica has it!!

RE: Dark plum almost black Hoya

Okay, no where was it specified if the bloom or the leaves bear this color. A good question to ask, eh?

More detail will help. Shape/color of leaves. Photos ALWAYS help.

Just two cents...

Cena, I think we're just all having a bit of fun speculating, since the original poster hasn't added the requested info. :)
