HOYA SWEET HEART
Hoya ‘Sweet Heart’ is a member of the Asclepiadaceae family and its origins are unknown to us.
A fast growing Hoya with a dense growth habit and narrow leaves well suited for baskets or ladders. The flowers 12mm across and come in bunches of 10 to 15 hanging from along the stems. They are pink with deep a pink/red corolla. It is a hardy vine but requires some protection in very cold climates.
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 C. Mulch well to conserve water.
Prune after flowering if required but don’t cut off flower buds as flowers appear each year on the same bud. Fertilise during growing period and withdraw water in the colder months.
