I've had two different clones of Hoya obovata. The first one didn't do well for me so I gave it away after it's first bloom

A few years ago I recieved a new cutting through trade and this one did much better. It grows steadily if a bit slow and flowers frequently with lots of fragrant umbels.

Best grown on trellis. Hanging basket works as well if that is preffered. It climbs rather than twines and the branches are robust and the round, flecked leaves rather heavy.

Flowers are white with a pink shimmer. Corona purple. Nice fragrance.

Enjoys light but no direct sunlight. Westfacing window is great. Can dry some. Fertilize regularly during summer.
