Adenium obesum, commonly called desert rose, is a thick-stemmed succulent that is native to semi-arid, sub-Saharan regions of eastern and southwestern Africa plus the Arabian peninsula.

With its glossy leaves, curvaceous caudex and 2 – 3 inch trumpet shaped flowers, It has earned its place in any tropical garden. It is easy to start from seed and grow on.

These rugged desert dwellers adapt to almost any situation as long as they have plenty of sun, warmth and very well-draining soil. These plants love to be in the direct sun.

CAUTION: Their milky plant sap is poisonous so handle with gloves when grown or wash your hands immediately after handling.

10 seeds.  Sourced from Taiwan.

  1. LGC

    Many thanks for your encouraging feedback.The seeds we sell are actually mixed and contains seeds from different coloured desert rose plants.

    The truth about desert rose seeds is, they do not grow ‘true to seed’. Which means e.g. seeds from a white desert rose are not guaranteed to produce plants with white blooms similar to its mother. Some companies choose to sell seeds indicating specific colours and patterns but there is a very slim chance that the seeds will actually produce the colours you expect. This is why you find that most unusually coloured desert rose plants out there for sale are grafted. For that reason, LGC will only sell mixed seeds so our customers do not feel misled. This was a tough lesson we learned from experience. If you get lucky with an unusual colour then treasure it!

    My first attempt to grow this beautiful plant. Seeds were well packaged with sowing instructions. Of the 10 seeds 6 germinated and 4 are thriving. This encouraged me to buy another pack in Jan😊. I wish LGC will sell other colours though
