Desert Rose/Star - Not Sure

Heard that this plant was called a desert star/rose, or, something like that. It looks like a small tree that was in a terra cotta pot. The only thing I saw were the flowers, pink to dark pink flowers that were shaped like a star. No discernable leaves when I took a second look. If you are familiar with a pandanus plant that branches out but only has growth on the ends of the branches. This was fairly similiar. It was a very striking plant.

Thanks. You are right. Used the name to find a link on Adeniums and there it was. Thanks, again. Now I have to get one.
