The Humble Hoya

Why does the Hoya hang its head and hide its pretty face?

These beautiful umbels must be lifted to appreciate the wax-like flowers.

Hoya carnosa/wax plant

Another name for this type of plant is wax plant. They are named for Thomas Hoy from England.

These epiphytes look right at home hanging from the branches of trees.

During the winter, they hang in my laundry room.
