Hoya - the plant, not the filter - from my front verandah: they smell delicious at this time of the morning, with a similar dollop of deliciousness around sunset. I'm unsure of the species but I've been told this one is a native - that could be wrong, it could be very wrong.
These rather special pink flowers appear in axillary umbellate clusters at the tip of peduncles: there are currently three clusters flowering with one cluster getting ready to flower and 5 peduncles that have recently finished flowering. This plant - which would now stretch about 10 metres if given the chance - was grown from a wee cutting about 5 centimetres long 6 years ago: it took over a year to first flower after I struck the cutting and - over the past few years - always has at least one cluster in flower.
Each of the clusters is the size of a large orange.
This is for , of course.
