    Default Adenium obesum, Desert rose

    This is a box store rescue. After a proper winter rest and pruning it's now a show stopper. Can't wait till it's blooming in full.

    Oh, I miss the one we had. It died and I haven't tried another yet.

    Yours is beautiful. Nice growing!

    Dang, Jeff, that is so wonderful! You must just love it. I need to get another one of these and try it again. Such a unique plant and such nice blooms.

    Nice growing!

    Very nice, Jeff! Mine was looking quite 'peaked' this spring and I was afraid I might loose it. However it now seems to be recovering and is putting out some leaves. I have been wanting to cut it back but had been advised to wait until I could see indications of active growth. So perhaps a trim some time this next month if all goes well......

    Such a tiny plant to be putting out such a large bouquet! Admirable!
