Also in commerce as Hoya odorata and I purchased as such. Later, the species was published as Hoya cembra.

When buying Hoya cembra I thought it would have a magnificent fragrance due to the name Hoya odorata, but once it flowered I could not detect any scen. Perhaps it smells only during the night to attract night fliers.

Plant much like Hoya paziae. Branches initially grows straight up but bend over by their weight after a while.

Leaves are dark green, quite glossy. New growth slightly red. Flowers very large, about 1" (2,5cm), white with bright yellow corona.
