AUSTRALIS ssp. AUSTRALIS
Hoya australis ssp. australis has slender twining stems with fleshy evergreen leaves with large flowers up to 70mm across and made up of 20 to 40 individual flowers in each flower. Flowers appear in autumn and are delightfully fragrant.
INDOORS: Most Hoya are well suited to hanging baskets or ladders and can be grown indoors under pot culture in a warm position but flowering is sometimes difficult.
SOILS: The vine will enjoy most soil types but prefers well drained gravelly soils, moist but not wet, warm but frost free above 4 degrees.
PLANTING: Dig the hole twice the size of the pot and plant level with the surrounding soil. Mounding can help with wetter soils.
CARE: Prune after flowering but don’t cut off flower buds as flowers appear each year on them. Fertilise during growing period and withdraw water in the colder months. Mulch well to conserve water.
REWARD: SIT BACK AND ENJOY!
