Leaves irregular in shape and size 2,5-3" long and about 1/3" wide. The feel kind of letherish and bumby, not entirely smooth. Glabrous, no visible veins.

The flowers of Hoya parviflora comes in umbels of approx 20 flowers. Umbels an inch in diameter, or a little bit more. Small flowering species. I detect very little scent.

As Hoya parviflora both climbs and hangs it's suitable for both hanging baskets and trellis. Fast grower that quickly finds it way to near by plants and gets tangelled in so one needs to keep an eye on it. Can tolerate some drought. Prefers a light position.
