    Default Common type of Desert Rose

    Ordinary single desert rose. Looked nice, so I took the pic.

    Very pretty; I would have taken a photo too!! Ours got a little cold on the night we got down to -13 F° . Of course the greenhouse did not get that cold, but the desert rose plants were on a lower shelf and got cold enough to drop their leaves. I hope that was all and the roots are still good.

    cheers,

    Tks!

    BD, look for any dark green areas - usually sign of rot. I had to cut the top off one that had plenty of buds ready to open (man, I hated doing that), but by doing so, I saved the plant. It has more buds now. I had another one that was the first one to show the dark green (we've had lots of rain, and cold nights), and I was reluctant to cut the top off. The entire grafted part died. Now, I top them if I see the damage starting. And when the rains are coming, I move them to where they won't be drenched.

    Here's two more - I can't recall if I posted these before, or not.
