A tropical, evergreen climber, Hoya 'Krimson Princess' has variegation on the inside (down the centre) of each leaf. H. carnosa's are very hardy and low maintenance and this variety is no different. Krimson Princess's highlights include pink vines and pink flower clusters, new growth emerges pink and the variegation is varied from white to yellow, sometimes throwing completely white/pink leaves. As an epiphyte, this plant prefers an airy, free draining potting mix and doesn't like to remain wet.
