Here is another H. imperialis photo; it is not that great, but in my defense, it is such a glossy flower that it is difficult to get a really nice result. I will however keep trying to improve. A few words about Hoyas as cut flowers. Hoya imperialis and Hoya macgillivrayi last nicely for about a week. Hoya megalaster is gone after a few hours. Something to keep in mind for any of you planning on using them in a corsage.
