A couple caudiciform succulents in the Dogbane (Apocynaceae) family.
From the East Coast of Africa we have Pachypodium saundersii, also known as the Kudu Lily (I wonder if that’s because there are Kudus nearby? Probably.) Shrubby, 3 to 5 feet tall max., and very spiny. But those pretty pretty flowers….
And here we have a gorgeous Desert Rose, Adenium obesum. Ohhhhh….. sooo pretty…… nearly brings me to tears….
Finally, we have a grafted Thai Hybrid of the Adenium obesums. They really do have a lot of crazy colors in Thailand. I wonder how they get them to do that? Anyway, while interesting, I don’t find these to be as beautiful as the ones above.
