Hoya compacta 'Regalis'

Our Hoyas have been outside all summer and enjoying it tremendously, rewarding us with some wonderful flowers. This on is the well-known variegated Hindu rope plant (Hoya compacta 'Regalis').
And for those who might have speculated about the origin of the name of the town of PeDee, Oregon ... speculate no more. An unincorporated community southwest of Monmouth, Oregon with a population of about 25, it was named by early settlers from the Southeast part of the U.S. for the PeeDee River, which was in turn named for the PeeDee Indian tribe. Now you know.
