Hoya 'Sunrise' is a cross between Hoya obscura and Hoya lacunosa. It seems to have inherited both the parents good qualities as beeing easily cultivated as well as willing to bloom. The plant featured is just over a year old. The leaves are medium sized, smaller than those of Hoya obscura , and the whole plant easy to fit in any window.

Hoya 'Sunrise' is more a hanging species than a climbing one so I find it more suitable for the hanging basket than for a trellis, but as with most things it is a matter of preferenses...

The flowers of Hoya obscura and Hoya lacunosa are much alike and as expected the flowers of Hoya 'Sunrise' had the same look and was a size in between and variable in color from yellow to red - thus the name 'Sunrise'.
