I have what I believe to be a Hoya Carnosa. My question is, are there different types within the carnosa variety?

I agree That is spectacular! Look at all those blooms!
To answer your question, yes there are different varieties of carnosa, for example Krimson Queen and Krimson Princess. There are more. We have an active Hoya forum here; you should check it out. Welcome!

Hi Plantlovingnana, Welcome! to garden.org!

What a happy, healthy and beautiful Wax Plant (Hoya carnosa) Lovey dubby

Yes, there are different cultivars of H. carnosa and you can view them on this page of our database: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

There are also many other species of Hoya besides carnosa, some with very attractive leaves, some that have tiny flowers and others that have very large flowers. Many Hoya blooms are extremely fragrant, usually in the early morning, late evening and night time hours. You can view all of the different species of Hoya on these database pages: https://garden.org/plants/sear...
