Hybrid, carnosa x serpens. I recieved this plant from the hybridiziser in Belgium. Usually goes by the name cv. Mathilde and is a natural hybrid, as natural as it gets on a patio. Hoya carnosa and Hoya serpens bloomed at the same time and butterflies did the rest.

The leaves of Matilde are thick and round, covered with flecks. It actually looks exactly like a mix between serpens and carnosa. Twines well but can be kept in hanging basket as well. Flowers like Hoya serpens but creme colored like Hoya carnosa with whom it also shares the scent.

Should be cared for like Hoya serpens. Slightly shaded and on they moist side.

The names 'Mathilde' and 'Chouke' have remained unregistered therefor they are invalid to use.
