Welcome to Today’s Flowers! All the images in today’s post are from my latest holiday in Chennai. I thought I’d take dozens and dozens of photos but the rain played spoilsport and I came back with only a quarter of what I thought I’d take!! But here they are smiling after all the drenching and maybe a bit of battering..by the wind and the rain.
Adenium obesum or Desert Rose seem to do very well in Chennai. This is an attractive plant with swollen succulent stems. It’s a native of Africa and the Middle East. No wonder adeniums love hot, tropical climates and a well-drained soil.
This dark pink is the most common among all the adeniums that I see in our area. I was glad to see a white one (below) as white adeniums are not seen in our area.
