A tropical, evergreen climber, Hoya 'Krimson Queen' is like 'Krimson Princess's little sister. The Queen has its creamy variegation on the edges of each leaf and often throws out completely white/pink vines. Krimson Queen's highlights include thick pink/brown vines and pink flower clusters, new growth emerges with a pink hue. As an epiphyte, this plant prefers an aerated, free draining potting mix and to dry out between waterings.
Please note the 200mm plants are very large and will be sent semi-bare root. They are hardy and epiphytic and are very tolerant of this.
