Know your Plant
Some plants are delicate, some are precious and some, like Hoya Kerri (Ho-ya Ker-ree) is romantic. Commonly known as the ‘Lucky Heart’.
It is a climber which can go up to 13 feet. During the summer, clusters of white, burgundy-centered blooms provide a bold contrast to the deep green leaves.
It is a very popular Valentine’s Day gift and Lucky Heart is mostly sold as a single heart-shaped leaf in a pot which is quite a romantic gift to give. This plant is a symbol of love (quite literally) and it is often used for expressing love when words don’t suffice.
