Variegated Hoya wayetii, Wax Flower, Porcelain Flower
The new foliage of this Stringbean Hoya look alike are touched in pinks and near reds and mature to a nice medium yellow to cream and green with a dark outline on each narrow leaf. This variegated form of Hoya wayetii is a vigorous, yet dainty, and easy to grow Waxflower that creates a tight mat of fine stems and dense foliage that is perfectly suited to spilling from containers and hanging baskets on warm shaded patios and porches. The dense low growth of Hoya wayetii should lend it to use as a groundcover beneath larger plants with similar growing requirements.

Hoya wayetii 'Variegata' is our tentative placement of this Hoya species from the available information that we have been able to find. It is very similar to the variegated form of Hoya kentiana.
