Wikipedia – Hoya Australis says it is an evergreen climbing vine which may reach 4β10 m (13β33 ft). It has simple opposite glabrous (shiny) leaves 3β6 cm long and 2β5 cm wide. They are succulent (thick and fleshy) and elliptical or ovate in shape. It serves as a food plant for the caterpillars of the Queensland butterfly the No-brand Crow (Euploea alcathoe), and the Common Australian Crow (E. core). Flowers are pollinated by the Southern Grass-dart (Ocybadistes walkeri). Often grown in containers and trained to grow on trellises
