I haven't had this species for very long so I haven't gotten to know it and its preferenses yet. It is one of few australis that grow in Australia alone (which is not the reason for its name as australis means "from the south")

Leaves are mediumsized, glossy green and have a quite unusual caracteristic. They have a scent of pine tree.

I got this one from a grower abroad as Hoya australis subsp. oramicola together with three other Hoya australis and I think the labels got mixed up when the order was packed. I soon realized the mistake when I read the type descriptions and looked at photos and drawings.
