Persian Carpet Flower

Edithcolea grandis

I have no idea who this Edith person is and why she has a carrion flower named after her.

The flower only last for a day, maybe a bit of a 2nd day at most. The stems are sprawling. It’s easy to get it to bloom, and is not as stinky as other carrion flowers. Look deep into the center, for tomorrow is election day and I can think of nothing better than getting right into the middle of a carrion flower to encourage you to vote (I mean I’m going to have a closeup of the flower tomorrow, but only if you promise to vote.)
