Hoya shepherdii is among the most enchanting of the Hoya plants. It’s popularly known as the string bean Hoya due to the elongated shape of its leaves.
Like most Hoyas, this plant species develops pendulous veins and vibrant foliage, which makes for a beautiful houseplant. It looks particularly stunning if placed on a hanging basket.
With time, it also produces clusters of fragrant flowers- another aspect that makes it a suitable ornamental indoor plant.
