Hoya quiescent “Solomons Pink” is a member of the Apocynaceae family and is a native of the Solomon Islands.
Solomons Pink is a hardy long lived Hoya and blooms with large light pink flowers on old wood as well as new growth. It is a good basket specimen and has green leaves speckled silver.
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.
Dig the hole twice the size of the pot and plant level with the surrounding soil. Mounding can help with wetter 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. Mulch well to conserve water. Prune after flowering but don’t cut off flower buds as flowers appear each year on the same bud. Fertilize during growing period and withdraw water in the colder months.
