Hoya retusa

I found this rough looking Hoya retusa at my local florist. I’ve never seen a Hoya like this before. It’s not the prettiest, especially not right now with all of the dehydrated and wilted leaves, but it’s a rare find, so I brought it home with me. This is also the most expensive Hoya I’ve ever bought out of my now 28 different varieties.
Hoya retusa is a very unique variety with its flat, pine-like leaves. The end of every leaf is shaped like a heart. This one has white flowers with a dark purple center. Hopefully I’ll get to see them this spring or summer.
