A Hoya ? rescued from Tesco a few years ago, this year a bit of new growth came out from the bottom of the ring that it had been trained into. Recently I noticed a flower head developing on the new growth and tofay the flowers are open

The flower head
A bit difficult to photograph as the flower is under the stem so just about impossible for me to look through camera viewfinder while camera in position on tripod. Fortunately my camera has an articulating screen so I could see the subject without having to bend my broken back.

Plant has been named as Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' after posting picture on Facebook

Thank you to everyone who contributed.
Among other contendents, I liked the composition of Rob's Echinospsis and Mike's (not sure what it is) 7th picture from the top, but the winner for me is Jim's Tesco Hoya, for the amazing texture and gloss.
Over to you, Tim!
