Stapelia ambigua

    Newer Older

    Yes, I do know that these flowers can be stinky. This one was removed from the plant before I photographed it and doesn't smell. Stapelia ambigua is the name on the tag with the plant. I don't know if that means that its not a specific Stapelia, although I did find one source (www.ville-ge.ch/musinfo/bd/cjb/africa/) indicating that Stapelia ambigua is synonymous with Stapelia grandiflora var. grandiflora Masson.
