When Annie, The Transplantable rose, passed along a cutting of the Stapelia at one of our Garden Bloggers' meetings, two years ago, I had no idea it was going to wow me with such an interesting flower.
Over the last few weeks the flower bud had increased in size daily until yesterday it popped open. I think it is beautiful.
I got down on my knees to sniff the flower. No smell of rotting garbage yet!
