ASCLEPIADS (STAPELIADS) - We are growing so many members of this group that we now list them separately.

Disclaimer:  Unfortunately many of the Stapeliads look so similar that they can only be told apart when in flower.  Additionally, they hybridize readily.  We do our best to make sure the plants offered are what they are supposed to be.  We cannot be sure that seedlings from open pollinated seed are pure until they flower.  Rooted cuttings are pretty much guaranteed to be correct.
