It’s actually been a tough year for my Desert Rose plants. I changed the location of my largest one, a Uranus variant, because it is difficult to move around. I thought it might do well out in our front yard, unfortunately it hasn’t gotten enough sun to cause it to bloom. With the peak of the Summer well behind us, this will end up being an off year for it.
Earlier this year, I lost my White Desert Rose. It just seemed to rot out inexplicably.
That leaves my Red and Black Orchid varieties. The Red is pushing a few more blooms, and the Black Orchid has finally bloomed:
Still, overall it’s been an off year for my adeniums.
This is supposed to be a Yellow Desert Rose, although it looks pretty white to me. The bloom is different from my other obesums as well. It has many more petals that overlap to form a much fuller looking bloom.
The plant itself is tiny. The bloom looks kind of funny, like it could tip it over.
Finally, my longest lived obesum. I thought the bloom had peaked about a week ago. I was wrong.
