Like many Hoya, wax flowers, Hoya excavata Teijsm. & Binn. 1863 flowers are highly fragrant. The strong, but very pleasant scent is reminescent of vanilla. Hoya excavata is native to Borneo and has been primarily described by the Dutch botanists Johannes Elias Teijsmann and Simon Binnendijk in 1863. Flowers are grouped in umbels of up to about 15 single flowers with a size of about 2 cm across. Flowers are long-lasting and stay up to two weeks. Hoya excavata plants have thick and fleshy leaves are very robust and fast-growing climbers and are best cultivated with a growth support, like a trellis.
