This H. australis clone has more round leaves that are not too thick and are very shiny. It gets medium size flowers and develops a nice cluster with many white waxy flowers that are super fragrant. It has also more red color under corona than other australis clones. This clone is a good bloomer once it is mature. This Hoya is native to Australia. We grow our Hoyas outside in filtered light and protect from cold temperatures. This Hoya requires more water than your average succulent Hoya because the leaves are on the thin side.
