    • The plant’s formal name is adenium obesum, but I’m guessing the more colloquial “desert rose” arose (no pun intended) as a combination of the beautiful flower it produces and the fact that it’s native to various arid areas in Africa (or, in my case, out of the fact that I “deserted” it after potting it and yet it thrives nonetheless).

    • Thanks so much, Lisa. I found that desert rose plant at a Home Depot about 9 years ago, potted it, parked it on my front walk, and have done nothing to it since. It waxes and wanes on its own timetable, but when it waxes it’s always very sweet eye candy.
