The wax plant belongs to the family of hoyas. It has string bean-like blades that are slender, dark green, and almost “bent” along the length of the leaf. The blossoms are fluffy balls with a darker crown and reddish lilac backward bend petals. The Hoya kentiana is a night flowering species pollinated by night critters such as bats and moths drawn to the sweet, sugary-scented nectar.
