This Asclepiad Will Stop Flowering...But When?

jeffrey_harris(San Diego, CA)November 14, 2005

This is the third round of flowering for this plant this year; eachtime, four or five of the branches have three to five flowers each.

Nice Asclep flower with the fringe on the petals....makes me want to ride in a surrey with the fringe on top.

Caralluma solenophora

Wow, Jeff!

What a great picture! That's a nice one! I will have to add it to my 'want list'. Thanks for the wonderful pic.

I love the flowers on these plants. I have never tried to grow one though. Are they difficult?

I like those little Carralumas, I'm not familiar with that species. Nice flower, I like the markings and the hairs on the tips of the flower.
