Edithcolea grandis (Persian Carpet) is a succulent flowering species from the Asclepiadoideae subfamily. It is widely cultivated as an ornamental plant due to its eccentric appearance.
Edithcolea grandis has long leafless stems with sharp tubercles. It produces small fruit and 5-lobed flowers with purple hairs. The patterns on these exotic blossoms have earned this succulent the "Persian Carpet" name and have a carrion-like smell that attracts pollinating insects.
