My friends staying in Kuala Belait have a lovely house.
The couple grow a lot of flowers to make their home colourful and pretty. This year they have special interests in desert roses.
Pretty pink ones which really bloom for days!!
This is a special bonzai. Desert Rose makes good bonzai actually. That is why people love them.
Here is a redder type.
Desert Rose - Adenium obesum is a strange, succulent-like small shrub, widely recognized for its pleasing flowers which come in a multitude of colors. The plant also has a unique growth habit, developing a large caudex at its base.
A short evergreen or decidious (in some climates) shrub, usually growing to more than 7-9ft. Many specimens remain only 1-3ft tall and the plant is fairly slow-growing. Tubular flowers are born on and off throughout the year and are generally some mix of white, red, and pink. A swollen caudex slowly grows at the plants' base with scraggly branches eminating out.
Hardy to around 30F.
Grow in full sun. Great container specimen, doesn't need too much room for roots. Water moderately, only when needed. Be careful not to overwater.
