      It’s strange because it immediately had a negative connotation but it took awhile for me to register that it was the smell that was awful. Then I Googled “Plants that smell like meat” and came up with the name immediately. I had one in California–out on my deck.
      Don’t think you’d want one in the house.

    It is a South African Succulent and yes stinks like rotting meat, but also looks like it, sometimes called carrion flower, has hair that matches. It is so confusing to flies that they even lay eggs on it. You can get really red versions. Many sizes and species and not all stinks.

      Many of my favorite flowers are South Agrican–proteus and pincushion among them. I actually remembered it had a horrid smell and Googled “flowers with a bad smell” and found this one immediately..Just found your comment which could have simplified things for me. Funny when you have an edge of memory and then tug at it and get a bit more and a bit more. I just knew this flower had an association for me and slowly remembered what it was. I always appreciate it when people send me the answers to my questions. Thanks to you for taking the time to do so.

    I love the colour combinations, so subtle. How strange the contrast of the lovely appearance of the flower and its smell and the idea of it being a ‘corpse plant’.
