WILD FLOWERS IN SUBTROPICAL ISLAND No.1

We went to a subtropical island,named Amami-Ohshima. I want to upload photos of a wax flower(Hoya carnora).

奄美大島に行きました。この島は山野草の宝庫です。

Hoya carnosa,belonging to the milkweed family.
 
サクララン、ガガイモ科です。

  9. おはようございます。サクララン凄いです。こんな花が世の中に存在するんですね。アップの写真は「飴」みたいに見えますが、4枚目の後ろから見た写真はまさに「飴細工」ですね。素晴らしい写真をありがとうございました。

  16. Do Hoyas really grow there in the wild? It must be idyllic with their perfume around. Great shots.
