This plant's flowers are beautiful and they don't fade for days on end. She is a beauty! Hope you like her, too.
What a nice deep red color and I like the contrasting white throat.
Very pretty! Was this a random seedling from a pink adenium or did you intentionally breed for red flowers?
Thank you! I can't take credit for this one. I bought it at a plant show. From what the vendor said she was a grafted plant.
Here is a picture of the entire plant. She doesn't look so good right now because she was attacked by about 25 oleander caterpillars and they did quite a bit of damage before I noticed and was able to intervene to save some of her leaves. They can eat every leaf on a plant like this in about a day if you don't notice them.
Very pretty indeed. The white throat makes her look even more beautiful. Congrats to you Yumtomatoes.
WOW! now thats what i call RED! :D beautiful flowers on a beautiful plant...u lucky duck u ...was it expensive from the plant show?
Really nice, def. a "true red" vs. pink that looks red.
I have noticed that the little crawly things love these plants for some reason. A couple of times every year I notice that a team of tiny little crawling things are after mine. Usually, they are yellow. I don't know what they are- have never bothered to find out, but I know how they die... suffocation in insecticidal soap.
sbrow - down here they sell the seedlings for $15 and the grafted plants for $25 typically when they are small plants. Larger plants cost more. I can buy the smaller plants since in this climate they grow fast.
irun5k - the oleander caterpillars are orange and have black hairs sticking out of them. Very characteristic. See the link. When they are younger, they don't have the black hairs but they are definitely orange.
