Adenium obesum - Desert Rose Flowering

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

My Desert Rose is flowering again. It flowered a few months back. The weather has turned very hot over the last week. Photo taken July 19, 2016. You get a side view. For some reason the pic turns when it's posted. :>/

If HD sells them again..
They always seem to offer them around September or later. Making it hard to acclimate them before winter.

I sold this one a few days ago. Got a really good price for it. I need to buy another small one...or find my seeds from my larger plant (from a few years back). I'd love to start some from seed. They bloom within a year or so.
