Miniature Pink And White Adenium (Desert Rose)
Adeniums, also known as desert roses, are growing in popularity. Commonly available in a single pink flower form, newer cultivars feature double and triple blooms in a wider variety of colours.
Adeniums are succulent shrubs from Africa and Arabia. They require at least moderate sunshine and well draining soil. Poor drainage leads to rot. I recently acquired this miniature adenium. It bloomed for the first time today.
