A beautiful, lush, green plant with medium to large sized leaves. A good climber that easily gets tangled together with neighboring plants.

Leaves can grow as large as 15cm by 7cm. They are oval in shape with a sudden, sharp tip. They are completely glabrous. The whole plant has a very nice appearance.

Flowers are golden yellow, approx 13mm in diameter, with a yellow corona. I have detected no scent. It produces nectar but it rarely drips.

The flowers of Hoya montana is very similar to those of H. dimorpha, H. dischorensis, H. kenejiana and H. ischnopus.
