One of my favourite Hoyas with glabrous, almost glossy, leaves. Clean foliage and growth. A climber that is not difficult to keep on the trellis and it flowers easily.

Leaves medium sized, approx 80mm by 50mm. The mid nerve is quite visible but never or almost never sunk in. The surface is slightly velved giving the leaf the appearance of a boat turned up side down.

Flowers approx 15mm in diameter and very spectacular. Corolla is soft red with long, white hairs sticking out. The corona has a darker shade of red with a white crown. I have detected no scent.

Protect from bright sunlight. Prefers even moist but tolerates some drought.
