Hoya is our best guess, but are the leaves consistent?

Pretty neat!

Thanks y’all! My daughter in law sent the pictures. She found them on an empty lot in San Antonio. Says they smell incredible. I’ve never heard of it.

Looks like Asclepias sp. To me.

To me, too

Maybe the leaves will help identify. I looked up the asclepias and it has so many varieties I couldn’t find one that looks like this one…yet. It does seem maybe more likely. The red part on these seem succulent and have all the characteristics as described in Wikipedia. I would guess just seeing it in person it’s toxic as well. Here’s the leaves.

That could be a variety of Honeysuckle,although I couldn’t find a leaf match. Brady

Yes. I am going to keep a photo record of it’s progression and maybe it will show itself out and be obvious. Time will tell…

I agree with Brady.
