Don't know the name, can some one ID for me?

A friend of my gave me these 2 big plants 2 years ago. Early this year she gave me another baby (3 inches at the time). I found the pots at garage sale for $2, so total for 2 pots for $2. This year, they don't have any blooms yet. Last year in November, only one had a bundle of blooms. The blooms were white and each one looked like a star.

Hi Marie,

Those plants look like Pachypodiums. The one with the flower could be P. lealii saundersii.

I think they all might be P. saundersii. They are related to Adenium and Plumeria.

Thank you Mark, do you think I may have yellow flower on the smaller one, or they are just the same?

I agree with Mark, that they are Pachypodiums. They do look like 'saudersii'.
Look like mine.

Hi Marie, :) I think the small one will most likely have white flowers, unless it's some sort of hybrid.

I added a chart of Pachy flowers. It might be sideways since I uploaded from my phone.

I shouldn't be looking at this thread. I do not need to add to my already getting out of hand adenium addiction. I've had one plumeria for the past couple of years. This past year it has grown by about 5 cuttings and about 15 seedlings.
