Meanie:

The name has been changed. This vine is actually Hoya pubicalyx cv "Silver Pink".

Meanie:

I'm actually to blame. I thought this vine was Hoya carnosa...because it's one of the most commonly available plants. Although, many species and varieties of Hoya can be grown here.

Doh!!!
I've just posted another photo of Sue's that shows it weeping! Is that where the scent comes from?

Meanie:

Yes, the sap is very fragrant. The hummingbirds love this sap. : > )
