Hoya australis 'Oramicola'

I said it was rupicola on Mike's post but it's oramicola flowering for the first time. The flowers are much smaller then other australis but the leaves are small too, I did not detect any scent this morning.

Oh those are nice blooms, just a hint of colour behind the corona. I have always liked white flowers, especially when they have a crystalline or waxy texture.

I still have yet to smell a Hoya australis of any kind in person. My Hoya calycina has come back from the dead but being only a few inches tall with two pairs of new leaves means no flowers for me any time soon. I am in the mood for a knock your socks off powerful Hoya fragrance of my own.

I've never heard of this kind of australis before. It sounds and looks nice though. To me, any flower that smells good is a definite favorite of mine!

Jan,

How do the leaves of oramicola differ from other australis? Are they also smaller? Pretty flowers, and glad to hear they are perfumey-fragrant like ssp. tenuipes. Now, if I could just get my dang ssp. australis to bloom!

Gorgeous Jan!!! I select most of my hoyas because of their foliage, but I chose the Hoya Australis ssp. australis 'Brookfield' for the flowers. The new growth does have a pretty bronzy appearance. I'm going to guess they smell perfumy too? Does anyone know? Mine is growing like a weed right now and since it is a year round bloomer, I'm hoping to see some peduncles soon (& I stress "hoping")...

Thanks everyone.
This is H rupicola, very succulant, the thick leaves are 2xlarger then Oramicola. I end up killing mine. ;(
I'll take the photo of oramicola, very compact growing, much smaller leaves then other australis.
