This carrion flower is noticeable because of its bell shaped purple flowers of 8 to 12 cm. Other carrion flowers usually have star shaped flowers.

In nature, it is a rare species that only occurs in the mountains of northeastern South Africa and Swaziland nowadays. However, it is seen more often in plant collections because of its peculiar flowers. The small-staying succulent can tolerate drought well and grows well in partial shade.
