Hoya australis in its variegated form, has leaves formed by the central part of an intense yellow (where the chlorophyll is absent), which gradually fades in circular and concentric bands until reaching the dark green of the margins. This perennial succulent plant is commonly called "wax plant" or "wax flower", appreciated by all for its versatility, very suitable for decorating homes and offices. Its stems have an erect, climbing, shrubby posture reaching even ten metres. It is very appreciated for its ovate, glossy leaves and for its very particular white flowers with a waxy look. Each flower resembles a five-pointed star, forms a bunch of flowers which also becomes star-shaped. The blooming can occur in any period of the year generating flowers that last about a week, with an intense scent.
