    Hoya?

    Asclepias?

    Certainly something in the subfamily Asclepiadoideae (former family Asclepiaceae)

    Don't know why I didn't count before . . . it's got 6 lobes, not 5 as an asclepiad would have.

    So likely a monocot.

    6 lobes? Hm, are you sure? :)
    No, it's got less than 6 lobes, and it's a dicot plant...

    :))) Hm... I'm in trouble: are they lobes?! I thought you mean lobes=petals... But, you are really very good at mathematics: it's got 6 "somethings", but I don't know the correct botanical name of this plantpart... :(

    Lila, is this a Hungarian native or an import?

    The genus is native to Hungary, but this species is native to North America.
