Desert Rose Plant Care

Desert Rose Plant Care.... The desert Rose is called Adenium. I've never heard of it before but I'm instantly obsessed!


Adenium Rose Chen. a very striking tricolor single that is very lovely. I have seeds on order of a hybrid very similar to this so I am hopeful!


Desert Rose (Adenium Obesum) is native to southern Africa and Arabia. When planted in the ground, Adenium can grow 4 to 6 feet tall with tons of spectacular flowers. The most striking feature of this plant is its caudex which can be shaped like a sculpture. Since it is not normally a deep root plant, shallow bonsai pots are great to cultivate and show off their extraordinary-looking caudex. This species of flowering plant could well be a good one for someone starting their bonsai experience.
