Brachystelma barberae


This perennial geophytic dwarf herb from South Africa is probably the best known cultivated caudiciform asclepiad. Its spectacular cage-like crystalline flower is almost as striking as the smell of its bloom, like perfumey rotting dung piled atop a decaying corpse. An irresistible confluence of opposites!

Overload your sensorium with this, the best of its genus, Brachystelma barberae.
