Hoya carnosa
Hoya carnosa Along with H. bella, this is one the most commonly grown species. It is easy to grow and the readily produced, strongly fragrant flowers are very showy. Several named forms of this species are available. H. carnosa is a species native to China.

This picture clearly shows the peduncle which grows from the stem of the plant and carries the flowers. Growers should take care when removing dead flowers to only remove the flower stems and not the peduncles. New sets of flowers will form repeatedly from the old peduncles, which gradually get longer with each set of flowers produced.
