Hoya australis has broad, ovate, shiny leaves which emerge along wild, winding tendrils. A vigorous grower, we've found this Australia-native to be very easy to grow and happy as a hanging plant or winding up a trellis. Like all Hoyas, the australis has waxy leaves and produces clusters of star-shaped flowers. But unlike all some Hoya, the flowers of Hoya australis – creamy white with burgundy centers – are quite fragrant! A new favorite in the genus.
• Light: Perfect for bright, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry to the touch
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Pet friendly!

Of the four members in my beginning Hoya collection (6" australis, 4" carnosa 'Krimson Queen', 6" obovata, and 4" pubicalyx), all purchased through Pistils within a 5-month span, my australis is the most established and longest reaching thus far. I'm excited to learn more about these beauties.
I was in awe at how beautiful this little gal is. It came in great shape, and it's settling well in my home. I'm totally in love with it and can't wait to get more hoyas from Pistils!!
This is another favorite of mine because of how easy it is to grow. Pistils Nursery never disappoints me with my shipment. I have purchased several Hoya Australis from Pistils and this one included was in perfect condition as usual. The plant is healthy and of course beautiful ready to show off alongside the rest of my Hoya collection. I do recommend this nursery for your plants and potting accessories.
