Hoya parasitica v citrina (Chiang Mai, Thailand)
Hoya parasitica v citrina (Chaing Mai) This species has quite large, thickish leaves. The glorious globes of flowers tend to be produced in flushes, with most peduncles blooming simultaneously. The plant then takes some time to recover, during which time its leaves look very distressed. It is strongly fragrant.

This is another plant that has suffered from taxonomical turmoil. It was originally described as H. citrina before becoming a variety of H. parasitica. More recently taxonomists have variously re-assigned the entire H. parasitica complex to H. acuta and/or H. verticillata but the old name is still in common use.
