I bought this hoya about a year ago marked 'Hoya Purpureafusca'. It has just bloomed for the first time and now I am not so sure it was properly marked. Any ideas?
SOLVED: Hoya ID help please!
Your tag is right if it says Hoya purpureofusca. The species name describes the flowers, which are a sort of rusty-rosy (salmony) color. "Fusca" means tawny (orangey tan to rust colored).
Hoya purpureafusca is a valid species, but the
plant in the trade under that name is usually H. pubicalyx. I think your plant is that.
