a very large adenium

tedb4(11b)April 28, 2013

I wish I could say this one was mine - note the soda can at the bottom for scale

It is planted in the landscaping in Knowledge Village in Dubai - there are a number of others but this one is the biggest by far....

This is an amazing plant. Is it an arabicum?

Adeniums should do very well Dubai's heat.

It was probably planted on the site about 10 years ago but no idea how big it was then...

Wow! I'd love to have one that huge but I definitely do not have the space for it.

Oh my...that is unbelievable, I think someone should lift that a bit so that we can get a better view of the caudex. ROTFLMBO!

It makes me giggle when I hear Adenium tree...when we grow them in pots we will never see a tree. However, that plant gives a new meaning to the word Adenium tree. How tall was it?

Thank you for sharing the photo.

I would guess it is probably 8+ feet tall - others in the same area are only 4-5 feet tall but this one really took off...
