Stapelia

Small succulents, which at first sight might resemble cactaceae due to their cylindrical stems slightly thorny along the ribs, which offer a wonderful mix of colors: from bright green to red-purple or greyish. This iridescent and exotic aspect of the plant is not its only peculiarity: its inflorescences are even more appreciated. When they bloom, in fact, they are clearly distinguished from cacti: marvelous star-shaped flowers pop out from among the twigs, sometimes up to 30 centimeters large. Despite their unpleasant smell, which they use to attract insects for pollination, the chromatic uniqueness of the stems and the extraordinary beauty of the flowers contribute, overall, to make this succulent of an inestimable aesthetic value!
