aka Orbea lepida. Children, or adults who think like children, gravitate to the curious and unexpected plants in a nursery, and Starfish Flower is certainly curious! A member of the milkweed family, it has thick succulent prostrate stems, which occasionally surprise you with tan balloon-like buds. The buds burst open to reveal these amazing looking (and smelling!) tan and brown spotted flowers. Yes, they have a scent…like carrion, which attracts pollinating flies. Haha!
