A new addition to the garden

This is a new stapelia in our garden.
It is Obea variegata. The very attractive flowers do not smell nearly as bad as the other varieties we have growing in our rockery.
The plany originated in the cape region of South Africa.
This variety has a flower that is yellow and reddish brown but the flowers, even on the same plant can develop differently.
