Purchased as Hoya sp. Sulawesi IPPS 8845 but said to be Hoya paulshirleyi.

Pretty and neat plant that won't grow out of your window sill. Dark green leaves with lots of veins that form a beautiful pattern. Oval shaped with a sharp tip at the edge. Approx 3" long and 2" wide.

Flowers are quite small, no more than a quarter of an inch, soft pink with a dark pink corolla. The umble consists of up to 40, wonderfully scented, flowers. Though the blooms don't last long, usually only a day or two, it flowers readily to make up for it.

For some reason this clone circulates as Hoya camphorifolia GPS 8845 on the Europeian continent. I don't know why there has been such a mix up as I don't see any resemblence between the two species.
