Browsing: Caralluma

Caralluma is a genus of flowering plants in the Dogbane family, Apocynaceae, consisting of about 120 species. The generic name is derived from the Arabic word "qahr al-luhum", meaning "wound in the flesh" or "abscess," referring to the floral odour. Most of the species occur in Africa, including several taxa valued by people for their medicinal properties.
