Hoya Carnosa 'Tricolor' or Hoya Krimson Princess has one of the most beautiful variation of the Hoya family. Her foliage comes in stunning colours of green, white and pink or red.

This Hoya is also known as "wax flower" or "wax plant". If you are lucky enough to see her bloom you will notice that her flowers are highly perfumed. Hoya Krimson Princess is pretty easy to grow if you are looking for a low maintenance plant.
