Commonly known as waxflower native hoya is found on rocky slopes of dry rainforest margins. It is a popular potted house plant where it enjoys a well lit position and is ideal for hanging baskets, verandahs and patios. The native Hoya is noted for its fragrant flowers. It grows 4-10 m in ideal climates but can be pruned to a shorter length. It is the host plant for the caterpillars of the Common Australian Crow butterfly and its flowers are pollinated by the Grass-dart.
