flowerjunkie2(z3)October 27, 2005


Have few cuttings/some rooted (but, easy to root)of the following:

Dwarf Starfish Flower - Stapelia species

Stapelia species, 'Starfish Flower', is a perennial succulent similar to a small cactus but without the thorns. This species is a dwarf compared to many with thumb sized 'leaves' and 1.5" reddish brown flowers. The other common name is 'Carrion Flower' due to the disgusting fragrance. The good news is you can't smell the odor unless you actually stick your nose inside the flower. Wonderful in a pot or hanging basket but also hardy outside in zones 9-11

Plant in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in sun or part shade

*I also have the reg size too...

***CAN SEND PIC IF U LIKE OF BOTH/not sure how to post pic here...

Looking for cuttings of brugs/Iochroma
