Post #4110168

In the trhead about "Sellers on Ebay" we mentioned a carnosa called "Dee's Big One" that Abbie's Originals sells.
I have a start of this as does Awanda apparently. Well, Eddie sent me a picture of the flower of this one so I have attached it here. It is pink with yellow coronas.
Now awhile back there was another discussion about a pink flowering carnosa. What I am now wondering is if this is the SAME hoya?
I had never heard of Dees Big One before getting it in that trade with Eddie so I don't know if it is a published name or what.
Anyone know anything about it or who Dee might be? ...or if it is that same pink carnosa some of you have?????
Marcy

Side Note: Guess I should not have put that photo of the flower in here as I did not get permission. I tried to edit it out, but can't figure out how to remove it. However I can give credit to the photographer.
The photo was taken by Michele Davis of Gray Davis Epiphyllum Nursery (www.graydavisepies.com)
Sorry about that.

Marcy, I found this line in an old file from Dale Kloppenburg recently:

"I believe this plant may have come from San Luis Gardens (Rudy Bachmannís) although possibly not. The species is similar to a Hoya carnosa with similar but somewhat larger foliage and larger flowers."

The name on the file was written as "DD's Big One". There were some photomicrographs, but nothing recognizable and no pictures of the overall plant.

Wow! That is a beautiful bloom ... and I can't believe how large those leaves are! Hope to see some more pic's when everyone's begin to bloom! It amazes me how many different Hoya's there are and the difference in leaf and bloom size in some of them!

Sorry to revive a long-dead thread, but WARNING: do not try to access the site www.graydavisepies.com - it's been assumed by someone with malicious intent.

There is no plant content there anyway.

Incidentally, the plant called 'DD's Big One' has been described as H. skinneriana by Kloppenburg and Wayman in 'Fraterna' Oct. 2011.
It was named for Dorothy Skinner of Modesto CA, and was said to have come into the trade from Randy Bachmann's San Luis Gardens.

This is the Hoya my father brought from Tennyson, Vic - which is now growing in Melbourne, Vic and has had no issues in Qld, Australia either. It has flowered from Dandenong, Vic, Middle Park, Vic and now Melton - I can't wait for spring! It starts of as a plastic flower - and then the plastic flower unfolds to show such a perfect delicate salmon pink flower. I will try and put up a photo when it comes out. I was told to have it in a Southerly facing aspect? Not sure if this is true. Can someone help me there?

My father had a big sprawling one (in Dandenong as well). I brought some cuttings home late last year and it's growing well here. Will be interesting to see if it flowers here as well. It was always covered with masses of flowers at my father's place. His was towards the south side of the house but still managed to get quite a lot of sun in summer.

No, we were in Qld for 12 years - moved back to Vic last November - now in Brookfield, new suburb of Melton.

There's a Brookfield in Qld, and I think another one in WA. It seems to have been quite a popular name.
