H. Thomsonii still blooming it's pretty head off. This is a side by side of the white bloom and the darker pink now in bloom.
H. Siariae supposed to be red form, maybe it is the time of year
H. publycalix 'Black Dragon' disappointing color. Pretty lime green leaves and I have to say that the weather has nothing to do with the color as it has been consistent throughout this year.

H. Australias - 1st time bloomer
Thanks for looking
Dee,Great looking blooms,specially for this time of year. Thomsonii is so pretty.
What type of Australis you have in the picture?
I got mindorensis (red)recently. Flowers are so interesting. I am wondering if I should keep it in my patio or bring it indoors,during winters.
Thanks Cindy. I have been very lucky this summer and when the temps starting getting cooler, I was getting more blooms. Fortunately when I brought them inside they didn't fall off and are still blooming.
MJ, I got the siariae from Joni. It was supposed to be the 'red form' but I wonder if the cooler temps have made it a lighter color. Seems like it was a darker color during the summer. I have the 'original' form that I got from Thailand and it is more orange with a red center. I also have a dark red form but it has not bloomed yet and I just got the yellow/pink form from her a month or so ago.
Beautiful flowers!!!!! I have a siariae that I bought from Ted Green, I brought it to Brazil in August/2011, and it still the same way when I got it, no development at all. Same thing with thomsonii. but tomsonii I have for 2 or 3 years, I really don't remember, how long, but still exactly the same way when I received it! Glad to see the pictures, it gives me hope!
I forgot to say something.... you're not the only one to be disappointed with black dragon, I've seen other comments about the same thing. Maybe this is not black dragon at all, but any way mistakes can happen.
Well Mitzi, I got it from George of Forest Treasures, so I would think it is, I know Joni's picture is not like George's either. I wonder if the weather conditions are the reason for such totally different color. I know different people get different colors on the flowers, but really, that many people?
Name: Carol Noel Hawaii (near Hilo) It's all about choices.
I think it is really 'silly' to name or identify a hoya by the color of the flower. There are lots of contributors possible for the differences: water, fertilizer, temperature, humidity....to name a few.
Hoya odorata outside my window, with the fragrances of lilac and hyacinth...
Hoya glabra...ever since I hung her higher (warmer with more air flow) in the greenhouse there are constant flushes of flowers. Unfortunately, they are staggered and don't bloom at the same time.
