Usually called Hoya cv. Chouke. ID no BE 24. "Sister" of the Hoya called cv. Mathilde BE23. Leaves are a bit bigger than Mathilde's, not as flecked and have a narrow tip. Nice plant that tolerates more sun and a bit drought.

The first few years Hoya 'Chouke' may seem a shy bloomer. It's sibling, 'Mathilde' is known for it's willingness to bloom readily and at an early age. However, given a few years Hoya 'Chouke' will bloom just as overwealming and in my opinion it's actually more beautiful than the sister. The plant in the photo is haning in a window facing north where the flowers developed a lovely shade of pink. The scent is very faint but sweet.

The names 'Mathilde' and 'Chouke' have remained unregistered why they are invalid to use.
