Hoya dennisii is a small growing Hoya for trellis as it's a twiner. Not a very fast grower in my experience but some say it is.

Leaves are rather hard, small, up to 50mm long and 25mm wide but often smaller, dark green with a beautiful venetion.

The flowers of Hoya dennisii are really big for a Hoya of this size, about 20mm across (3/4"). When just opened the flowers have a faint scent that reminds me of a shoe sole. At night the scent is sweet but not very strong. Color is bright pink with a dark red corona.

In my experience Hoya dennisii is not a very difficult Hoya to grow though it is very sensitive to change when with buds. Placed in a sheltered west facing window it has thrived when left alone. Keep it slightly moist but not wet.
