Glorious Hoya waymaniae

... But soft, what light through yonder shade cloth breaks?

Images of Hoya waymaniae, captured on a rather gloomy afternoon. Everything about this rather slow grower is unusual - the thick, cryptic, slightly felty leaves and the bright yellow bloom with protruding coronas. The long peduncle of this species isolate the umbels from the leaves and allow me more flexibility to manipulate the light and accentuate the three dimensionality of the bloom.
