Wikipedia – Hoya Australis says it is an evergreen climbing vine which may reach 4–10 m (13–33 ft). It has simple opposite glabrous (shiny) leaves 3–6 cm long and 2–5 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),[3] 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
