With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Blooming Hoya

Blooming Hoya

My Hoya plant doesn't bloom frequently but when it does, I get excited about its unusual flower.
 The plant has become very large and dense ~ almost the size of a small bush.
I have keep it in the house but this year I moved it out to the front porch to spend the summer there.
 It must be happy because it is now flowering again.

 
 
To see photos taken almost daily of the development of the tiny buds to a fully opened blossom, click this link to my post dated February 2009, Hoya Plant in Bloom.

I am so glad to see this. I have one of these in a pot and had no idea what is was. Used to keep it in my kitchen until I got tired of it when I moved it outside. The summer heat has been rough. Now I have an all new appreciation for it.

I had one of these plants years ago, but cannot remember what happened to it. I had it in our master bathroom and it loved it there. I think it liked the steam. The only problem, and most probably wouldn't consider this a problem, was that it had a very strong scent and it was only fragrant at night. It was so strong it was sickening and we couldn't sleep. You didn't mention whether yours had a scent or not. I would be interested to know. This brought back happy memories, so think I will try to find another one. Thanks!

Fabulous photos! Last year I saw a picture of a blooming Hoya but was not identified. It took a bit of research to finally find out what it was. I thought it was unusual and very pretty. I have it on my list of plants I want to get next spring.

I hope you are having a beautiful day!

i really like close up shots of flowers in general...and these flowers you've here, they look so delicate and intricately detailed! the perfectly formed fuzzy looking stars...reminds me of God, the amazing Engineer/Inventor!

They are the most unusual and beautiful blooms from such an unlikely plant. When my husband and I were first married and bought our home, the owner left a large hoya plant that they didn't want to take with them and the following year or two it bloomed. It was exciting!

Ann said...

I've never heard of that kind of plant but the flowers are gorgeous. They look so soft and fuzzy.

This is a childhood plant to me that I had completely forgotten about. The velvety flowers always mesmerized me.
