Identification of Blooming Vine

I have a vining house plant that I have had for at least 7 1/2 years. This spring it just so happened to bloom with this rubber like light colored pink bouquets with a deep red center. The flowers put off a beautiful scent of between a lilac and peony. I have attached a couple of pictures if you could take a look. Thanks for you help. Kim Silver

  1. Kim,

    I believe this is a Hoya carnosa (Wax Plant).

  2. Kim,

    Yours is a wax plant (Hoya Carnosa). It blooms only when it gets enough light and is rootbound. The flowers will rebloom in the same place, so if you must trim it, trim where it has not bloomed.



  3. Heather Johnson says:

    This is a Hoya Carnosa commonly called wax plant because the flowers look as if they are made of wax. It is a beautiful plant and I have several varieties that grow outside in a large pot in a position sheltered from the hot afternoon sun in Melbourne.

  4. Jamie, thanks for posting the beautiful pictures of this plant, I’ve had it for about 3 years and just one week ago I saw 1 bunch of flowers which surprised me. My plant is 4ft. tall. I know it is a Wax plant but the flower smells good at night.

    I have a Hoya plant I have had for almost 20 years. It took several years to bloom but once it did, it has bloomed every year so beautifully all summer long until this summer when I decided to re-pot it. Since then, all I’m getting is long vines climbing into my blinds and all over the place and no more blooms. It bloomed once, maybe twice. It is so entwined and I also have two others now that are entwined in with the older plant so I’m stymied as to how to get my plants to start blooming, especially the older one. The two newer ones which I started from the older one have never bloomed. I need help. Thanks so much

  6. Judy,

    My best advice would be to continue what you’ve always done. Plants can sometimes be temperamental and re-potting it could have caused it distress. It should rebound in time.


  7. I have one of these plants also I have had it maybe 5/6 years and has never bloomed.🤣🤣🤣 not I love it. I got my clipping from my mother in law and hers blooms all the time. Smells wonderful!
