Hoya carnosa

Just in case you might be interested, this is what the blossoms on my hoya look like. They range in size from just under half an inch like these are to giant varieties where the individual flowers are nearly the size of your hand. Most commonly they are from pink to purple in color, but there are also white, orange, green and yellow varieties. There is even a hoya with red, heart shaped flowers! The flowers are interesting in that they look fake, like someone snuck into your house and hot glued some little plastic fuzzy flowers onto your plant. I must admit that I swiped this photo from a horticulture website. You can be sure I'll post pics of my own when a bloomin' miracle occurs!
