This one has in Sweden been sold as Hoya dennisii (!), and still appears as such from time to time, but also as Hoya longifolia pubescent form. It was recently published as Hoya stoneana but the article is a subject of discussion. The species looks like Hoya longifolia in many aspects but it's leaves are pubecent on the back side. An nice and fairly fast growing species.

The flowers of Hoya stoneana are approx. 2cm in diameter. The scent is rather foul but fortunately not strong so if one doesn't stand really close to the plant the smell won't be a problem.
