    It looks dangerous! Yikes! Very cool though. I am sure Lou will want one--especially if it is in the stinky family and looks dangerous!

    Kinda looks like an octopus with thorns instead of suckers..... But the flower color is lovely, and if it doesn't actually stink..... If you do get some cuttings I'd love one.

    I saw you said that earlier, but it does look dangerous!! That is reason enough to grow it! Anyway, I am excited we are on your list!!
