{Our Adenium obesum Desert Rose Surprise}

On May 28, Pieter had a surprise for me in the greenhouse. The Adenium obesum Desert Rose was blooming! We used to have this on the window sill in the bay window area but since it is a poisonous plant for pets, it had to go to the greenhouse... As much as I love plants; I love our felines even more! In Africa its toxic sap from the roots and stems is used as arrow poison. It is native to the Sahel regions, south of the Sahara (from Mauritania and Senegal to Sudan), and tropical and subtropical eastern and southern Africa and Arabia. 
As a matter of fact, Travel - Fashion - Lifestyle blogger friend Tammy Lau from Edgymix did show them in their natural environment in one of her posts: The Most Alien Place on Earth-Socotra  isolated from mainland Yemen you can view them in the top photo, above the subject line.
It is happily blooming inside our greenhouse! Quite a Surprise...
They do have lovely flowers!

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja, alle woestijnplanten bloeien omdat het hun overlevings cycle is door zaad te produceren! Google maar eens naar 'The desert blooms' dan kun je met verbázing naar al de prachtige bloemen kleuren kijken!

    1. Dearest Kay,
      Guess that somewhere it will be on the market as well, as a potting plant. They certainly are not native to Australia, neither to the USA but they get imported as exotic potting plants.

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Looks can be deceiving we all know that... and in this case it is about the plant being toxic. Too bad but for the sake of our fur babies its best they remain inside the greenhouse! Still we get to enjoy their beauty.

    Du machst dir immer so viel Arbeit mit den Fotos und den

      Ja so muss man auch bedenken das die Markt in der USA soviele Malen grösser ist als welches Land auch, also hier gibt es schneller etwas neues. Diese Blüten sind sehr schön und es ist toll dass sie als Topfpflanze angeboten werden! So brauchen wir nicht in die afrikanische Wüste zu reisen...
      Lieber Gruss und kein Dank; es macht mir sehr viel Freude es zu teilen!

  17. Dearest Mariette,

    How very kind and sweet of you to remember Marcels birthday, thank you.
    I can see why you must have been excited that your desert rose was flowering and that you have placed it in your green house. - it is pretty.
    Hope to be back blogging next week - we are at Nice until Thursday when we travel back to Paris on the TGV and then fly home on Saturday. Having a great time and we have been so lucky - the weather has been gorgeous and only one wet day. Hope all is well with you and wishing you a lovely week

    I checked the flower with PC and found that it is a kid of "Apocynaceae" and flowering plant in the dogbane family. Haha, I thought it is funny that rose family had poisonous kind p;) Thank you so much for showing us another rare flower♡♡♡ Sure similar lovely flower with oleander.

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

      Indeed, it does belong to this huge family and group of dogbane plants. Botanical names and sub species are interesting!
