Adenium obesum - Desert Rose

Adenium obesum - Desert Rose (Adenium obesum - Desert Rose)

My desert rose is just starting to bloom. I purchased this one last year. It's taller than my 8 year old plant, which hasn't started blooming yet. Photo taken Apr. 10, 2013.

Yes, I'll post another photo. I have an 8 year old plant which bloom very prolifically every year.

Here's a few pics of my Adeniums, unfortunately the two last plants died a year ago from unknown reasons.

Its interesting the way the flowers unfurl......

Usually, it doesn't look like this. My other Adenium flower buds don't unfurl like this one.
