Stapelia Grandiflora is a species of flowering plant in the family Apocynaceae, native to south eastern Africa. Growing up to 20 cm (8 in) tall, it is a clump-forming succulent with erect green stems 3 cm (1") thick. In summer, it bears large star-shaped five-petalled flowers up to 25 cm (10") in diameter. The flowers are scarlet red with a silky texture and fringed with hairs, that can be as long as 8''. They have the smell of rotting flesh, in order to attract the flies which pollinate them. Despite the foul odor of its flower, S. Grandiflora can act as an appetite suppressant in humans. The plant is commonly referred to as Zulu giant, carrion plant or toad plant.
