Flower for the Day 4-30 Hoya

In the midst of all this outdoor explosion I looked 
upward from the dining room and found this exotic bloom 
on our hoya plant which lives on the second floor landing. 
A flower cluster in which stalks of nearly equal length 
coming from a common center to form a curved surface 
is called an umbel.

The blossom of the hoya is umbellated.
