Anyone know what variety this may be!

This one I got a couple years ago and it's different from all my others. The leaves are tiny, most are 1/4 the size of all my others. It's never bloomed for me and all my others do bloom several times a year and this one gets the same care. It never looses it's leaves during the winter.
Is this a different variety, does anyone know.

No idea but the obesum that I've been training as a bonsai for the past several years has very small leaves. No blooms yet though.

RE: Anyone know what variety this may be!

Ks, it looks like obesum, and it is pretty without any bloom. Karyn got a good point, because bonsai type had very small leaves.

Please post if it ever has any bloom.

RE: Anyone know what variety this may be!

Thanks Marie & Karyn, do these types come in many colors also? If it ever blooms I'll post a picture but I've had it at least 3 years now and none yet.

RE: Anyone know what variety this may be!

They do come in a variety of colors but most often you'll see pink or a pink/white combination.

You might consider pruning some of the small branches to open the plant up a bit.

RE: Anyone know what variety this may be!

Thanks Karyn, So they come in basically the same colors as the larger leafed ones. I'd love to see a picture of the one you're training as a Bonsai. I've been trying to decide what I wanted to do with mine.

RE: Anyone know what variety this may be!

I got this one labeled as Adenium arabicum 'Tiny Leaves'--its obviously grafted though --is yours?.
The largest leaves are the size of my thumb.
