One of the golden girls from Papua New Guinea. Although the leaves of Hoya kenejiana are quite unique with their laurel shape, the flowers of Hoya kenejiana are practically identical to thos of Hoya dischorensis, Hoya dimorpha, Hoya flavescens Hoya ischnopus, Hoya montana and Hoya trigonolobus

Hoya kenejiana is a true climber and does so really well. It's best not to start out with a too small trellis as it can quickly grow out of it. Long periods it looks like it's doing nothing, not growing nor blooming, but as it is a beautiful plant it is decorative in any case.

Flowers are golden yellow and doesn't have any special scent. Although Hoya kenajiana can bloom as a young plant is not free flowering but rather sparse, one umbel at the time.
