Darn that Walmart!!! I stopped by tonight after work, and bought myself some white plastic shelves to place all my screenporch sux on. WELL...I found this very pretty, waxy, thick leafed plant. Not a succulent, but a Hoya! It is called Hoya "Rubra", or Hoya carnosa variagata! I looked at the tag, and it says it likes HIGH light, and LOW water! How succulent-like is that??? I loved it, and it was all I really needed to add to my collection of plants! I had seen a curly leafed Hoya before, and was intrigued, but did not buy. Now I feel I may need to have a small collection. Especially when I saw what the blooms look like! Lordy...they are something else! See below.
How do you like these variegated green and white leaves? Are they not just so exquisite??? I love the feel of them, so thick and waxy!
Here is a pic of what the blooms will look like! Awesome! I just feel like I hit gold in finding the Hoya family of plants, with all of their succulent-like qualities!
