    Stapelia purpurea

    A multi year seach for this plant finally paid off. I got a three stem rooted piece. Hope it is true to id. Stapleia flavopurpurea. https://www.google.com/search?q=stap...Q&ved=0CCgQsAQ

    Have always admired the pics of its flowers. How big does the plant get?

    Personally, I have to vote for Stapelia variegata: http://www.mzephotos.com/gallery/cac...variegata.html

    The plant was purchased recently via Fleabay (cross your fingers for good id) but the price was right, and I went ahead and ordered it. Another recent acquisition is this one - Senecio stapeliioides. The stems look very Stapelid-like but the flowers are on long stalks and bright orange. https://www.google.com/search?q=sene...g&ved=0CDEQsAQ

    Funny for these types of plants it seems the cooler the flowers often the smaller they are.
