This resilient Hoya hails from Down Under, an Australian Native Plant with lush foliage boasting a unique two toned look - starting as deep red when young and morphing to a lustrous green. Hoya australisis found growing naturally north from Grafton (NSW) along the Queensland coast to Cape York in rainforest margins and exposed, rocky areas. It is commonly known as the wax vine due to the wheel-like clusters of up to 40 exquisite porcelain-like flowers on each long stalk that appear in spring and summer.
Can Hoya Australis take full sun?
Hoya australis is an adventurous vining plant that loves to climb trees and explore its surroundings. It's a sun-seeker, enjoying part of the day in bright indirect light or subtle morning or late afternoon rays - just enough for it to show off its beautiful white flowers! Perfectly adapted with waxy leaves, this daring species can thrive in full sunlight all the way down to partial shade conditions.
