Stapelia gettliffei

Stapelia is a genus of low-growing, spineless, stem succulent plants. The hairy, oddly textured and coloured appearance of many Stapelia flowers mimic rotting meat, attracting scavenging flies for pollination. This coupled with their odour, has earned them the common name of carrion flowers.
