Collection number IML 449, found at Pandanus Creek in Queensland.

Hoya macgillivrayi and it's varieties are found only in one part of the world; the north east corner of the northern part of Queensland in Australia. All varieties are named after the places they were found.

The leaves are hard with a rather sharp tip. In my oppinion the plant does best on trellis. Can grow out long, leafless, stems.

The flowers are large in various shades of red, ranging from light red to really dark burgundy, almost black, as in the case with this one called 'Pandanus Creek'. The umbels consists of 5-15 flowers. Very fragrant, similar to magnolia.

A sunloving species. I grow this one in a south facing window with no protection from the burning sun. Keep moist. It does not like to run dry.
