Notes:

This is a vigorous indoor vine with thick, fleshy leaves and clusters of waxy, star-shaped pink flowers with red dots in the center. It blooms in June after being in a greenhouse all winter. The blossoms don’t look real, but look like they’re made of wax.

    Thanks–I hadn’t noticed the odor. I’ll have to sniff it!

    This is a Hoya plant commonly called Wax Plant. Those beautiful blossoms have a wonderful fragrance. Not sure how many species there are-more than my humble abode can accommodate.
