More flowers in my green patch...the Desert Rose

>> Oct 26, 2009

I am still waiting and waiting for other pots of hibiscus to bloom. Sigh! Sadly, they are still very young and I know I need to be patient but they are growing very slowly...no buds in sight yet.




Meantime, there's the desert rose, Adenium Obesum, a flowering plant in the Apocynaneae family, with soft velvety petals, tuba-like flowers in pink, red and white shades. 




Cultivated from seedling or stem-cut, tho' growing from seed will yield a swollen caudex. 



Many Chinese homes have these beautiful flowers as the Chinese name "fu-kwai" is very auspicious, brings luck, wealth and glory to the family. These are popular bonsai plants. They require sun, and water only every 3-5 days.


I have found some time to do a little gardening, unwind, de-stress, relax (do I sound very stressed?...not really, just needed to get close to nature :-D) and admire the greens over the weekend.
