The flowers on the Hoya meliflua are pink and normally have 5 chestnut colored stains from the nectar. The flowers last a long time and they smell like chocolate, in my opinion! I have seen flowers in the spring, summer, and fall on my mature mother plants. The leaves are succulent-like, dark green, and glossy. This Hoya isn’t much of a climber, but looks really nice hanging in a basket. Great hoya to add to your collection, it is a strong hoya that grows very well. This hoya can tolerate freezing temperatures for a short period of time although I would avoid this, especially when it is a young plant! This species is native to The Philippines. This Hoya is sometimes called “The little fraterna.”
