Apart from the wild Savanna, desert and rocky mountains, the adenium plant can be grown in home garden albeit in well drained soil and tropical, warm climate. Dwarf Adenium looks magnificent as Bonsai.
The enchanting desert rose captivated my heart when I went to Manipal to visit my daughter in India. The abundant growth of lovely pink flowers on the tree caught my attention and I decided to grow it in my garden. Since I do not have a large space to house a tree, I decided to grow a hybrid species of Adenium in a pot.
Thankfully, there are many hybrid species that can be grown in pots and plethora of colours that can mix and match the beauty and dignity of these flowers.
A popular species derived from the perennial succulent, Adenium Obesum is also known as Desert Rose. However; the Desert Rose nowhere resembles traditional rose.
