This hoya has pink-splashed waxy round leaves and the terra cotta is definitely pink.

It’s a wonderful plant and the photo is awfully nice as a card.

Eye-filling paintings and photos excite me. Mine are inspired by the interplay of color, especially when it creates a cheerful and thoughtful impression. I am a photographer/writer/artist and love both nature and tech stuff. I also publish garden books — see my website. Thanks for looking at my work.

    Thanks, Silvazee. The container is over two feet tall—it was even prettier than the photograph.
