Opened this morning folks. I'm fair delighted with it. I thought it would end up pink but it's a lovely deep red with a yellow throat. It's the first adenium flower I've seen in the flesh.
And another, in case you missed the first pic lol
Bravo, Averil! She is perfect.
Desert roses are like celebrities ...they need to be photographed at all different angles.
You have a beautiful plant there Averil ...an amazing red. You can never go wrong with red. Congratulations -Joe
Averil, that is so special. To have your first Adenium flower being from one that you started. The red is a nice deep red. You have it staged so well in that pot also. It matches your Geraniums to.
WOOHOO! Congrats! It's even better when they turn out to be something you didn't expect but better.
How gorgeous! I love the way you've displayed your beautiful adenium. The pot and top dressing of pebbles is perfect. Very nice!
Wow.....Averil...that is totally worth for all the waiting time.
Beautiful, gorgeous pot and more buds to be open soon.
I am very happy for you....
Thanks for all your kind comments folks. It's when I look at that flower that I realise how beautiful the plants I see on this forum must be when seen in the flesh. I'm happy with my little bloom and there's a few more to open. Yahooooo!
Kind regards to all
Lovely Bloom on a very handsome plant ! ! !
And the red goes perfectly With the red of Your geranium , lol ...
Your Picture makes me envious , but also gives hope ...

Well done !!! Now just imagine when the plant has a full head of bloom ! You will see for yourself that they are long lasting too. Please post again when more open. We are having good adenium weather at the moment aren't we ?
Britta, thanks. Have hope for sure! For some reason that one of mine has flowered but not a sausage from any others lol. Good luck
Thanks Brian, I was thinking how lovely the plant will be with more blooms so I'm looking forward to the other buds opening. Regarding the weather, there must be something in the air if I've managed to get a flower lol
It's very nice, I love the red and yellow.
Being from seed, is this the color you expected?
Gorgeous! I love the throat and it's contrast to the red. Awesome first bloom!
Lovely flower!! Well worth the wait!
You did it right? You moved south.
They worth all the time we wait to see them blooming
Nice flower congratulations
