One of the amazing "carrion flowers"! S. hirsuta is an exceptionally easy plant to grow on any sunny windowsill. This bizarre plant produces a huge, star-shaped flower reaching 6" across! This species is a deep purple/red and is covered in dense hairs giving it it's specific name. The unique aspect of these plants is that they use flies and beetles as pollinators so the "fragrance" is quite unique! Even when not in bloom the fuzzy, succulent upright stems are unusually attractive. A great gift for those gardeners who already have everything else! Available plants are growing in 3" deep pots.
