May be one of the best hoyas available. Huge 6 to 7 inch, long-lasting flowers appear in very large clusters of up to 15 buds in summer. Flowers are waxy and almost appear to be plastic.

Growth is rapid with leaves up to 16 inches long. This robust grower is best trained on a trellis.

Will only flower well if in a heated/tropical environment but can also grow in cooler climates if protected.
