Hoya australis is a wonderfully hardy, climbing, twining vine with lots of personality. They grow at a moderate pace and have some resistance to disease, pests, drought, and cold.
The Australis is equally happy climbing a support or trailing from a basket: its slender vines can reach 13-33 feet long (4-10m) ! The plant blooms in lovely clusters of white, red-tinged flowers that have a spicy-sweet fragrance and are prized for attracting butterflies. Their scent is strongest in early evening.
