|I just found this information accidently while looking for something else on PS The Hoyan. After wading thru the trivial attacks on everyone in the hoya world she could think of, she listed all the Cultivars.... Thought it was interesting...
Hoya carnosa cultivars:
â€˜Albaâ€™ (Same old, same old pink flowered thing)!
â€˜Argentea-Pictaâ€™ (Trademark name, â€˜Silver Princessâ€™) â€“ This Latin name was given it before the Code was written.
â€˜Bold Oneâ€™ (A Genevieve McDonald cultivar).
â€˜Convovulaceaeâ€™ (A name given to a cultivar of Hoya carnosa variegata having smaller, slightly twisted leaves, by the owner of Loyceâ€™s Flowersâ€™ in the 1970s. I have found the cultivars â€˜Holliana,â€™ â€˜Marleaâ€™ and â€˜Divanâ€™ to be indistinguishable).
â€˜Cream Oneâ€™ ( A Genevieve McDonald cultivar, also called â€˜Lime Creamâ€™ and â€˜Lime Green,â€™ but only by people who canâ€™t keep their facts straight).
â€˜Darling Oneâ€™ (A Genevieve McDonald cultivar).
â€˜Dimplesâ€™ is a made up name, put on labels by an Ohio grower (no longer in business) who wanted to avoid paying royalty to Cobia. The man was so brazen, he bragged of doing this (in public). This is Hoya cv. Krinkle-8.
â€˜Divanâ€™ (A dwarf Hoya carnosa var. variegata. I see no difference between this and cv. Holliana. If they arenâ€™t the same cultivar, they have to be from the same cross).
â€˜Green Exoticaâ€™ (When cv. Rubra reverted, the owner of Loyceâ€™s Flowers cut the green parts out; rooted them and sold them as cv. Green Exotica).
â€˜Hollianaâ€™ (A dwarf form of Hoya carnosa var. variegata. I see no difference between it and cv. Divan).
â€˜Krinkle-8â€™ (A Cobia introduction; looks like it could be a tetraploid; thick leaves & stems with 8 dimples on them).
â€˜Little Oneâ€™ (A Genevieve McDonald cultivar that grew up after it got named and distributed. It is huge for a carnosa).
â€˜Little Leafâ€™ (Another Genevieve McDonald cultivar. Itâ€™s not a miniature but looks like a â€˜Krinkle-8â€™ that didnâ€™t take its vitamins â€“ a bit stunted in growth).
â€˜Little Starâ€™ Iâ€™m unfamiliar with this one.
â€˜Mandaâ€™s Compactaâ€™ (An almost flat, extremely thick leafed thing with leaves closely spaced. Leaves glabrous, with a glaucous wash over them, almost round.. Flowers typical, pale pink carnosa flowers).
â€˜Pixie Krinkleâ€™ (A true miniature version of cv. Krinkle-8. I do not know the source but I got mine from Stu Cramer of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Stu said he got it from Glasshouse Works. I donâ€™t believe they have it anymore).
â€˜Quiescentâ€™ (Source not known. I canâ€™t distinguish between it and Hoya carnosa. My source said she couldnâ€™t either but she said, â€œI sell them with the labels that were on them when I got them.â€ Good ole buck passing excuse for mislabeling).
â€˜Rubraâ€™ (trademarked as â€˜Krimson Princessâ€™).
â€˜Snow Ballâ€™ (a misnomer â€“ flowers are huge and very pink, not white as tooted.).
â€˜Snow Fireâ€™ (I believe this is cv. Snow Ball. I say this because I sold â€˜Snow Ballâ€™ to the only dealer I know of that ever listed the name â€˜Snow Fire.â€™ When I bought it from him, it appeared to be the same).
â€˜Superbaâ€™ (Although this has been in trade for at least 40 years, I believe that it and â€˜Snow Ballâ€™ are one and the same.
â€˜Susie Qâ€™ (Source not known. Not much different from all the rest).
â€˜Sweet Oneâ€™ ( A Genevieve McDonald cultivar with the most delicate, purest pink flowers of all the Hoya carnosa cultivars Iâ€™ve seen).
â€˜Tricolorâ€™ (trademarked as â€˜Krimson Queenâ€™).
â€˜Verna Jeannetteâ€™ (This is a better behaved â€˜Silver Princess.â€™ Named, Iâ€™ve heard, for Mr. Cobiaâ€™s mother). He did not patent this one.
â€˜Wafflesâ€™ This is cv. Krinkle-8. Same Ohio seller who made up the name â€˜Dimplesâ€™ for the same cultivar is responsible. He bragged of it in public.
â€˜Wilbur Gravesâ€™ (Broad motoskei-type leaves but often with half or more of the leaf white in an irregular pattern.
Hoya compacta cultivars:
â€˜Crinkle Curlâ€™ (A name in a 1970s-1980s dealer catalog â€“ dealer couldnâ€™t spell). This is cv. Krinkle-8
â€˜Gringle Curlâ€™ (Same dealer catalog a year later shows this name. She changed it when I told her the Crinkle was wrong. I did not supply the name Gringle. That was her own idea). This is cv. Krinkle-8.
â€˜Mauna Loaâ€™ (trademarked Lura Lei and most often mislabeled as Laura Lee, Laura Loa, Mona Loa and Mona Laura â€“ in other words, if hoya growers can find a wrong way to spell it, theyâ€™ll do it)!
â€˜Pictaâ€™ (Made up cultivar name, given to cv. Mauna Loa by a Fresno, CA hoya seller who couldnâ€™t keep his facts straight)!
â€˜Regalisâ€™ (mislabeled on internet as â€˜Variegata,â€™ â€˜Variegatedâ€™ and â€˜Krinkle.â€™ The names, Indian Rope, and Hindu Rope have been applied to this by sellers who make up names for anything new to them. Itâ€™s less trouble than learning the right name and often more lucrative (i., e., if they used the right name, they couldnâ€™t sell it because all their potential customers know they already have it).
â€˜Toveâ€™ is the name given to a mutation on Hoya compacta. It differs from others in having silvery splashed leaves. Iâ€™ve been told that it has been circulating in Sweden for several years.
â€˜Compacta Variegataâ€™ (A made up name for cv. Regalis by a Fresno, CA hoya seller who couldnâ€™t keep his facts straight).
Hoya lacunosa cultivars:
â€˜Toveâ€™ is the name given this mutation that appeared on what someone thinks is Hoya lacunosa., but probably isnâ€™t. I see nothing in the Code for Cultivated Plants specifically prohibiting the naming of two cultivars with the same name when they belong to different species but I think that â€œgoes without saying.â€ But I guess that some things have to be spelled out repeatedly for some people to get it.. This one is said to differ from the norm in having a dark, copper tinted leaf and light rose coloured flowers. Growers tell me that theyâ€™ve grown it for several years and have seen no sign of it reverting.
Hoya lanceolata bella cultivars
â€˜Lida Buisâ€™ is a variegated form of this species, having green margined leaves.
â€˜Luis Buisâ€™ is a variegated form of this species, having white margined leaves, or so Iâ€™ve been told.
â€˜Albo-marginataâ€™ -- another illegal name for a cultivar. I suspect it is the one above that someone
thought was something new..
Hoya publicalyx cultivars:
â€˜Bright Oneâ€™ (Bright blue-red corolla with rose coloured corona â€“ differs from cv. Pink Silver in colour of corona).
â€˜Dapple Grayâ€™ (I place this here though Iâ€™m not certain it belongs. Ms. Andrews who distributed it, labeled a pink flowered carnosa with this name in the picture book she rented me but all the flowers Iâ€™ve seen so labeled have been purple.
â€˜Fresno Beautyâ€™ (Kloppenburg named this for his home town).
â€˜Grey Ladyâ€™ (Iâ€™m unfamiliar with this cultivar â€“ I suspect itâ€™s from England â€“ the way gray is spelled is what gave me that notion).
â€˜Jungle Gardenâ€™ (From a California grower. Little different from cv. Pink Silver).
â€˜Jungle Greenâ€™ (No such as far as I knowâ€“ I suspect that someone just couldnâ€™t think of Jungle Garden and started calling it Jungle Green â€“ lot of that going around)!
â€˜Leenieâ€™ (named by Dr. James Broton for his wife, Eileen).
â€˜Pink Silverâ€™ (the best of the best â€“ a Hummel creation).
â€˜Pretty Oneâ€™ (????. I question this because I once rented Ms. Loyce Andrews Hoya Photo Album. She showed this as a pink flowered Hoya carnosa look alike. The one she sold me had pink flowers too, however, everyone else I ever heard of who got a â€˜Pretty Oneâ€™ from her got a plant with â€˜Pink Silverâ€™ look-alike flowers with broadly ovate leaves.
â€˜Red Buttons Seedlingâ€™ (unnamed Miyashiro seedling).
â€˜Revaâ€™ (Kloppenburg named this for his mother).
â€˜Royal Hawaiian Purpleâ€™ (often sold mislabeled as Hoya pubicalyx var. chimera and as cv. Chimera).
â€˜Silver Leafâ€™ (similar to â€˜Pink Silverâ€™ but with rounded leaf bases and not as much silver speckling).
â€˜Silver Knightâ€™ ( Seen by me only on a wholesalerâ€™s price list â€“ turned out to be cv. Pink Silver).
â€˜Silver Princeâ€™ (This turned up on the same wholesalerâ€™s list the year after Silver Knight â€“ turned out
to be the same plant--holesaler even admitted to the truth).
Hoya macgillivrayi cultivars
â€˜Rainforestâ€™ (A Miyashiro cultivar)
â€˜Red Masterpieceâ€™ (Another from Miyashiro).
â€˜Choukeâ€™ (Reputed to be Hoya carnosa X Hoya serpens, bred by Emilio Begine in Belgium.
â€˜Golden Eyeâ€™ (Miyashiro cross of Hoya vitellinoides X Hoya incrassata).
â€˜Kaimukiâ€™ (Miyashiro cross of Hoya archboldiana X Hoya macgillivrayi).
â€˜Mathildeâ€™ (Another Emilio Begine creation, a sister seedling of cv. Chouke.
â€˜Minibelleâ€™ (Named for Minibelle Hummel, hybridizerâ€™s wife; Hoya shepherdii X Hoya carnosa).
â€˜Napaliâ€™ (Another Miyashiro cross of Hoya archboldiana X Hoya macgillivrayi).
â€˜Rainforest Beautyâ€™ (Miyashiro cross of Hoya archboldiana X Hoya macgillivrayi â€“ I suspect this
might be the full name of one listed by Kloppenburg simply as â€˜Rainforest.â€™
â€˜Shepherdellâ€™ (Sister seedling of â€˜Minibelleâ€™).
Unnamed MM cultivar: Hoya subquintuplinervis X Hoya sp. Bangkok-4. This oneâ€™s flowers are
very like those of the Hoya subquintuplinervis X Hoya pottsii cv. Christine in flower but the leaves
are quite different. See below.
Leap. The net will appear.
