Sarcostemma insigne

This is one of those plants (AKA "Green Spaghetti") which - most of the year - people look at and ask "Why are you growing that thing?" Well, this is one of the reasons.
The other reason is ... we just like weird plants!


  1. Absolutely! The weird-er the better. And the blooms are really neat too.

  2. You get no argument from me. Good to hear from you.

  3. I love funny stick plants and dead-stick plants. Cynanchum, Sarcostemma, various Euphorbias... And with these Asclepiads we not only get the unusual stick look, but the strange, wonderful flowers.
