Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Baloonplant, Cotton Bush, Swan Plant, Balloon Plant, Family Jewels Milkweed Tree
Origin: Jamaica and South America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersIrritatingAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The name Balloonplant is an allusion to the swelling bladder-like pods which are full of seeds. During the summer, umbels of creamy or greenish-white flowers are produced; these are followed by interesting globular seed pods which are inflated and covered with soft bristles. The flowers are small, with white hoods and about 1/2 inch across. The capsule is a pale green, and in shape an inflated sphere. It is covered with rough hairs. It reaches three inches in diameter. This plant grows to 6 feet tall with a spread of about 2 feet. It has lance-shaped, medium green, hairy leaves. Flowers are a nectar source for many butterflies and leaves are a food source for monarch butterfly larvae (caterpillars). It is also popular in traditional medicine to cure various ailments.

Hoya australis, Common Waxflower

Click to see full-size image Hoya australis
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Common Waxflower
Origin: Australia
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

H.australis is a moderately vigorous climbing species. The leaves are thick, succulent and almost round in shape, growing up to 9cm across.

The stems contain a white, milky sap which is poisonous. Flowers occur in clusters of up to 40, each on a long pedicel (stalk) and about 20 mm in diameter. They are fragrant, white in color with deep red markings in the centre.

The species is popular in cultivation in tropical and subtropical areas and is successful in temperate areas if protected from frost (the species will tolerate light frosts). H.australis is also suited to growing in containers and hanging baskets. Grow it in a well-lit area, either indoors or outdoors, with a bit of dappled overhead shade to protect it from the blazing sun. It needs well-drained, though not necessarily especially fertile soil to grow in. Flowering is best if good light is available but the plant will grow in reasonably heavy shade.

Propagate the plant from cuttings taken at any time, using a good propagating mix, can be grown from fresh seed.

Origin: South East Asia through Australia

This variety has curious curled leaves. Very slow growing and showy. Hoyas are adaptable plants found everywhere from true rain forests through the slopes of the Himalayas, from semi-arid niches in Australia to damp forests. They range from vines, the most common form, to shrub-like growth. Most are epiphytic. Hoyas are in the family commonly known as milkweeds. They are most closely related to Stapelia, Ceropegia and Dischidia. They were first identified as a new genus by Robert Brown in 1802. There are now several hundred distinct species. Many of these species are in cultivation. Var. Crispa Variegata has variegated leaves.

Hoya kerrii, Wax Hearts, Sweetheart Hoya, Valentine Hoya, Heart leaf

Click to see full-size image Hoya kerrii
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Wax Hearts, Sweetheart Hoya, Valentine Hoya, Heart leaf
Origin: Thailand, Malaya and Sumatra
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Hoya kerrii is named Sweetheart Plant or Sweetheart Hoya because of the heart or valentine shaped leaves. It has thick, succulent type, opposite leaves that are indeed shaped like flat hearts. The leaves are joined to the long, twinning stems (by the sharp tip of the heart-shape leaf) with to 1 inch long, 1/8 inch thick petioles (leaf stalks). The stems produce aerial roots which in their native habitat grow into deposits of humus found in crevices and branches of trees as well as absorbing moisture from the air. These aerial roots root easily when inserted into a moist medium making it easy to propagate new plants from stem cuttings. Hoya kerrii also comes in forms with variegated leaves. The flower shape is typical of hoya plants. Small, flat, star-shaped individual flowers are joined like ribs of an open umbrella to form a cluster that is attached to a spur (single stem) called the peduncle. Each small flower is made up of two stars, one on top of the other. The so called bottom star (corolla) is larger in size than the upper centered star which is termed the corona. Hoya kerrii has whitish corolla's and reddish corona's. The flowers are very beautiful, waxy, tough and long lasting. All hoya flowers have wonderful fragrances, some very powerful, others less so.

Hoya kerrii makes an ideal houseplant. It is called the Sweetheart Plant since it has become increasingly popular in recent years. Unusual and quirky "heart" shape leaves appeal to anyone looking for that special novelty gift for their plant enthusiast friend. Most often Sweetheart Plant is sold as a single small leaf in a small pot. We have large developed plants, ready to bloom! You will have something much more beautiful and striking because the unusual shaped leaves on mass, as you might be able to guess, looks like a bush of green hearts! What a great Valentine gift to give someone, and the reason it sometimes goes by the name Valentine Hoya!

The plant is super easy to look after, with only minimal care. It would probably tolerate one good watering a month - it's that hardy. This plant will need a reasonably light room in order to actually grow, although it will still get by even if you pick a shadier spot, you could position it almost anywhere in your home or office.

With its succulent qualities it's quite adapt at storing water for longish periods of time between waterings. This makes it a hardy and undemanding plant for the most part, of course only providing basic care will result in a surviving rather than thriving plant, so where possible wait until the soil has dried out a little and then water again. The Sweetheart Plant isn't bothered about humidity either.

The flowers, like most Hoya's, are stunning as the contrast in the flowering parts are really bold. The all green variety tends to grow more quickly (although it's still slow by most houseplant standards) and is arguably more hardy, but it also comes in a pretty variegated variety. The variegated version of Hoya kerrii can be hard to find.
