Hoya merrillii is another shop favorite because of its rippled shiny, waxy reddish/purple leaves. The young leaves often have reddish/purple tones, and as the leaves get larger, they get even redder when exposed to bright light.
Hoya merrillii collected in the Philippines by E.D. Merrill.
As the plant matures, it produces clusters of beautiful white flowers that slope up (this could take a year or several years).
