Cynanchum stoloniferum 4" pot


This Stapelia relative has thick, whip-like stems and no leaves.  The star-shaped flowers bloom in clusters along the length of the stems. Looks great in a hanging basket.  The milky sap is poisonous, so be cautious. Another unusual species from one of my favorite plant families!
