In the early 90'ties Hoya davidcummingii was sometimes sold as Hoya gracilis and, but more rarely, as Hoya angustifolia.

A small leaved hoya for the hanging basket although it can be grown on trellis too. I just find it more suiting for baskets. Leaves are flwshy and glabous, approx 2/3" (1,5-2cm). Color is dark green and there are no clearly visible veins.

Flowers are small, approx 1/3" (0,7cm). The tip of the petals bend backwards giving the flower a cupshaped look though they aren't truly cup shaped. Redish-pink color, yellow corona. Has a fresh fragrance, similar to sour milk (not as bad as it may sound). Some compare the fragrance with fudge, but my nose tells me different.
