Desert Rose in bloom

This is one of my all-time favourite plants.  It sits quietly in the garden all year round and then shoots out these spectacular flowers in June/July.  It is a member of the succulent family (Adenium obesum), is very easy to grow and requires little to no attention.  In the wild it can grow up to six feet and develops a thick, fleshy trunk.
