Hoya polyneura is a vining epiphytic plant in the dogbane family Apocynaceae. It has attractive waxy foliage. Native to the Himalayas and China, it makes an easy houseplant, ideally suited for pots or a hanging basket. The inflorescence is made up of multiple flowers, hanging or more upright, grouped in an umbel. The flowers are creamy yellow with red centers. They are star-shaped, and are borne in clusters that look like they are made of wax. The flower's surface has a smooth appearance without the tiny hairs seen in many other Hoya. They are heavily scented. Like all species of Hoya, H. polyneura flowers from spurs. These appear from the axils of the leaves and stem; flowers may not be produced when the spurs first appear, but in time buds emerge from the tips. Each season new flowers are produced on these same spurs, so they should not be damaged or removed.
