Tiny Blooms with a Huge Fragrance

The species of hoyas known as Hoya lacunosa are some of the most fragrant ones you can grow.  At the moment, the tiniest of all of them, my Hoya lacunosa ‘Langkawi Island’, is blooming on just one peduncle and the scent fills the entire corner of the sun-room in the evening.  I would describe the scent as a sorta of lilac/rose which is very pleasant to me.  Goes to show you that bigger does not always mean better when it comes to fragrance and hoyas!
