Hoya cv. Minibelle is a cross between carnosa and shepherdii.

As with most if not all carnosa crosses, the carnosa flower is dominant and we see it here in cv. Minibelle. We find the inflorescences  to be more compact with shorter petioles and form nearly perfect half circles every time. The color is also perhaps slightly darker than most carnosa. The fragrance is wonderful!

The leaves have the same texture, vigor, and speckling as carnosa but are narrowed by shepherdii to about halfway between the two parents. carnosa also shortens the leaves a bit from the long leaves we typically see on shepherdii.

This is an absolutely wonderful and very easy plant to grow and highly recommended to anyone.
