It also experiences plenty of sun even during winters, where there is no snow.

Hoyas are tropical plants that are a member of the Apocynaceae family. They are sometimes called the wax plant, porcelain flower and wax flower.

These plants are best known for their uniquely stunning clusters (called umbels) of small flowers. The flowers bloom in many different colors. And you’ll see varying number of blooms per umbel based on the species.
