Historically linked to H. carnosa, this plant has similar flowers. Its leaves are slightly hairy and the flowers have a very strong sweet fragrance.|
An unusual feature of this picture is that several flowers have only four
lobes. Hoyas, like other asclepiads have five lobed flowers, but occasionally freaks can be seen mixed in amongst the normal ones.
