The Luzon Hoya in Davao

Hoya meliflua in flower
Quick Post: It has been so long since I last saw a Hoya meliflua in flower.  So far back that I forgot that there is a Hoya named meliflua, hehehe.  It escapes my mind that it has a very unique and pretty flower cluster. Good thing I rediscovered it in my friend Ron's garden in Davao, Mindanao. Come to think of it, it has also been long since I saw a specimen of H. meliflua in Luzon, flowering or not.  Ironically because Hoya meliflua is synonymous to Hoya luzonica, suggesting the plant was (or is) found in Luzon. Hopefully there is still Hoya meliflua out here in Luzon.
