Rick, it is so cute.


RE: Mini Size 'Sun-Up Star'

I have one of these. I've always thought of it as an odd ball because I never seen another one anywhere else. Mine is 7 years old. I will post a picture later tonight.

RE: Mini Size 'Sun-Up Star'

Here is my 7 year old that I have always considered miniature because it has
Never grown big ...its height is less than a foot.

RE: Mini Size 'Sun-Up Star'

Thanks Joe,for posting this photo. They are very dwarf and the Adenium
growers speak of the somewhat twisted/curled leaves being a very good
trait. I guess there are some that do not produce this character.
Has yours flowered for you? Mine still quite young.

RE: Mini Size 'Sun-Up Star'

It has bloomed and only once. The color of it was the original pink with a little white running down the center into the throat. And just like you mentioned Rick ...I have only kept it because of the curled leaves it has. I have for years taken this desert rose to other growers around the area here and no one has been able to shed any information on it. So I have kept it because it's one of my first ones.

RE: Mini Size 'Sun-Up Star'

Congrats to both of you. I very much like the look of those. One to go on my "future" list.


RE: Mini Size 'Sun-Up Star'

This variety looks like one of those curled-up hoyas, Rick and Kiwijoe. Even if they never bloom, I like that they are almost unrecognizable as adeniums. I especially like that they stay that small!
