India Deep Red is an attractive variety of Desert Rose that flowers during spring through summer with rich dark scarlet single blooms.
Adenium is commonly known as the Desert Rose in reference to the spectacular flowers they produce.
Easy to grow from seed and easy to care for. Great for that bonsai look.
Adenium is a genus of succulents with swollen trunks, stems and flowers that are among the most spectacular succulents often borne in masses over a long season.
Native to North-East Africa.
Adaptable to most soils as long as it is well-draining, although it will take full sun it prefers a protected shaded position receiving only filtered sunlight
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-24°C
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
