If the name Hoya magnifica refers to the flowers or the leaves I dont know but both are magnificent. Leaves are large 4-6" long and 2-3" wide, dark green and pubescent. The stem is very robust and though the plant does best on trellis it might not twine so well around it. Easily cultivated.

Flowers are large, 1,5" in diameter, bright white and cup shaped.

I suspect there is more than one variety of Hoya magnifica available. The first clone I owned smelled terribly if not as bad as Hoya vitellina. The second had a very pleasant scent. The third has not flowered yet so I don't know...
