I am not a professional nor an expert in the Asclepiadaceae taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. We offer 72+ hour heat packs for $4.00 each. Please read the front page for ordering information.

   Stapelia flavopurpurea - Is a tufted cactus-like plant to 10 cm, with wonderful small-sized flowers that have a diameter of only 3cm. They are flat, shaped like a star-fish, and quinquefid interrupted by irregularly arranged cross wrinkles. Their color are eye-catching: yellow, green, orange, or purple, white, with maroon overtones. The center of the flower is white and covered with red claviform hairs. The combination of colors is quite bizarre and lovely, very variable, even on the same plant. S. flavopurpurea is one of the few species whose flowers are not distinguished by a penetrating smell of carrion but, on the contrary, have a light sweet smell like liquorice or honey, unusual in the Stapelia group. Flowers with these scents may well be pollinated by bee, because the enticement of insects depends not only on color but also in a high degree on smell. The smells involved are not in every case the pleasant kinds produced by violets and roses. Stapelia flavopurpurea is closely related to Stapelia olivacea. South Africa. These plants bloomed in October. Growing in 2.75" pots. 4 in stock @ $10.00 each.
