Believe it or not but I actually bought my first Hoya polystachya labeled Hoya serpens! When I pointed out the mislabeling to the florist she got very upset and claimed "the wholesaler knows what is right".

A very large leaved species that needs a stable trellis to grow on as it gets quite heavy with time.

Flowers continuously with small yellow-brown flowers, much like Hoya pentaphlebia, in large umbels. Produces lots and lots of sticky nectar. Blooms at any time of the year.
