Some claim that this is actually a natural hybrid between Hoya cembra (i.e odorata) and Hoya schneii, called 'Iris Marie'. Contradicting information says it's not the named hybrid, nor Hoya paziae... Time will tell us what it is. For the time being, keeping the name Hoya paziae seems to be the safest approach - if not because of the unsirtainty of the true name so at least to avoid confusion with the true 'Iris Marie'.

Hoya paziae is a very decorative species that looks a lot like Hoya cembra in both growth and blooms. The branches initally grow straight up and bends over by it's own weight. Doesn't twine or climb so it's best grown in a hanging basket.

The leaves of Hoya paziae are medium sized, a bit smaller, dark green and a bit hard with a pointed tip on the edge. The mid nerve is the only visible on on the leaf. New growth is deep red.

The flowers of Hoya paziae are large, about an inch across, bright white with a red center star. Soft, but sweet fragrance.

As most Philippine species it thrives in moist and should not be allowed to run dry.
