I got this plant from a friend who found it on the side of he road! I'm trying to nurse it back to health. I can't find it in any of the plant data bases -- any ideas of what it may be?

Welcome!

What a great side of the road rescue! I think its Hoya callistophylla. I think. Read up on Hoya if you have never grown one.

Wax Plant (Hoya callistophylla)

Thank you so much for your response Thumbs up the leaves from this look a little different so I'm not sure if it's a Hoya callistophylla or a rare type in the same family ?

I think pairs of opposite leaves negates Hoya. Take a look at this:
Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus longicaulis 'Black Pagoda')

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

I agree Lipstick plant.

BTW, Hoya does have opposite leaves. Smiling
