Adenium arabicum Raidah Escarpment
Adenium, commonly known as Desert Rose, are actually tropical plants that produce a fat trunk where water is stored for the dry season.
This variety is a progeny of seed collected by Tom McCoy from the Raidah Escarpment in Arabia. A member of the Periwinkle Family, Apocynaceae, it produces an aggressive caudex rivaling that of Adenium obesum. Given plenty of sunlight, water, and without much effort, even small juveniles will produce a substantially bulky caudex. Adenium arabicum has lightly pubescent leaves and can be a stingy bloomer. An easy remedy is to add a bit of bloom booster in the spring and fall. Voila, small pink and white flowers emerge.
Available in 2 inch pots.
