The Desert Rose is a bush native to Africa that produces very lively and cheerful trumpet-shaped flowers. Although its growth rate is very slow, this makes it an ideal plant to keep in a pot for many years, even throughout its life.

The Desert Rose, also known as Sabi Star, Kudu, Desert-rose or Adenium and with the scientific name Adenium obesum, is a shrub belonging to the Apocynaceae family that reaches 2m in height. It is native to the tropical and subtropical east and south of Africa and Arabia.

Its leaves are perennial, which means that the plant remains evergreen all year round, but it loses them in areas where the winter is cool. These are simple, whole, and leathery. They measure 5 to 15cm in length and 1 to 8cm in width. They are dark green in color and have a highly visible central nerve.

It is important to add that its sap is toxic, so if it is necessary to prune it, you must always wear gloves to avoid problems.
