Carrion Flower Root

Carrions (after which the carrion flower is named) are members of the milkweed family and are native to tropical areas of southern Africa. The plants possess large flowers which exude an unpleasant odor resembling rotted meat. The odor attracts flies, which helps the plant to reproduce by pollination. The genus Stapelia contains about 60 species of these succulent plants.
