this is a red desert rose. they come in many colours from white to black. they also have seed pods that look very funny at 1st if you have never seen it. these seed pods can hold anywhere from 30 to 90 seeds & look like a little stick in the middle with fluff on either end. they are also called helicopter seeds that fly in the wind. when you have it in the seed pods & they change colour put a stocking over the pod & you will not lose any seeds. you plant them in sandy soil & they love sunny places if put in the shade they will not flower as much but full sun they flower a lot only light watering every 2nd day.
