Hoya are tropical or sub-tropical shrubs, vines or woody lianas that can grow quite large. Hoya can be either terrestrial or epiphytic.
This species is an evergreen vine or liana with thick, fleshy, two to four-inch-long, green or variegated leaves. It produces large round, hanging clusters of creamy white to light pink, 0.5-inch diameter, fragrant flowers, each with a perfect five-pointed pink star-like structure in the center. The flowers are waxy and last a long time. Bloom fragrance is subtle and you must come close to the plant to enjoy it, but it is well worth the effort. These long-lasting, showy blooms emerge on old flower stalks, which should never be pruned off, as they will bloom again later.
