Mindorensis In Full Bloom

Hi everyone,

Here are pictures I took of my mindorensis this morning. I checked it this evening for fragrance and was I ever pleased! It reminds me of honeysuckle but less wafting and more mild. A definitive favorite in my collection! I'll get a picture of the flowers tommorrow.

Very nice Brad, congratulations on the blooms! Your description of the fragrance makes me wish I could smell the blooms.

Mike, it also reminds me of lilac or hyacinth (again, powerful perfumed flowers), . I just smelled it again and I lean more towards the lilac scent. Right now, it's my favorite fragrance but I've only smelled carnosa (forget what it smelled like, most people say chocolate), Red Buttons and lacunosa. Lacunosa is pleasant but strong. I read this was a frequent bloomer, so now you know why it's one of my favorites!

They look lovely, Brad. Mindorensis blooms were among the first that I did flips over when I discovered there was more than one hoya. ^_~ I still think they're awesome.

Hi Brad;
Those blooms are beautiful. All of the ones I've seen on the forum are just breath taking! Can't wait till one of mine puts out a bloom. I got three new ones for my birthday to go along with my lone Carnosa thats 16 yrs. old.I am really getting into this!! Thanks to all of you and the forum.
