Up to six months of huge vibrant blooms

The Desert Rose or ‘Adenium’ brings a tropical look wherever it goes with its large flowers that start to bloom in the early spring and last all the way until fall.

By storing water in their wide trunks Desert Roses are highly self-sufficient and can survive heat waves and droughts with very little attention. They’re the perfect hands free blooming trees for busy gardeners.

Desert Roses are low maintenance plants that will fit any project. They can be kept small as an indoor bonsai and they will amaze your friends and coworkers if kept on a tabletop, or on your desk at work.  Desert Roses can also be kept in a larger container for an accent tree that will bring an island getaway vibe to any space.

If planted in the ground Desert Roses grow to about 6 feet tall, allowing them to fit anywhere, even under utility lines or by the pool. The possibilities for Desert Roses are endless. Simply decide where yours will look best and prepare for up to six months of blooms.

Each flower has a radiant hue that fades into white in the center, bright hues pop against the Desert Rose’s dark, lush leaves for an explosion of tropical color.  The trunk is a shade of light grey with a unique shape. It’s wider at the bottom while the top is narrow, giving it a pyramidal shape.

Your family and neighbors won’t be able to resist the urge to ask about the tropical land where your Dessert Rose came from.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Desert Rose 'Adenium'



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Desert Rose 'Adenium'.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Desert Rose 'Adenium' gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Desert Rose 'Adenium' again after the transplant is complete.

If you transplant in another pot what kind of dirt does it take and how big of a pot would you put it in ?
irma c on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Chose a pot that is slightly larger than the one its in now. You want to gradually transplant in larger containers as your rose matures.
Mix your own potting soil, with equal parts of sphagnum peat, finished compost and coarse sand or brick chips. Or you can purchase a bag potting mix intended for succulents or cacti.
