Desert Rose is tough, drought tolerant and demands little attention, making it the perfect addition to low maintenance patio gardens!
Includes one pot of Desert Rose.
This plant commands interest and is sure to be a conversation piece! The Desert Rose is a dramatic, one-of-a-kind plant that thrives in sunny, low moisture environments. The most unique feature of the plant is the greenish-gray bulbous base, known as the caudex, which grows with age. Its trumpet-shaped pink and white flowers, fleshy green leaves and swollen base make it a perfect specimen for a non-traditional, instantaneous bonsai. The perfect container plant for any home, deck or patio!


Is this for you?
A native of East Africa and a relative of the plumeria. The Desert Rose is a succulent plant that can live for hundreds of years. It makes a perfect companion for cacti and other succulents!

Enjoy it year-round! Desert Rose is beautiful when planted in the landscape as an annual, but is also perfect for planting in a container with good drainage. In warmer months, enjoy this sun-lover on your deck or patio. In coolers months, we recommend bringing the plant indoors and placing it by the brightest sunny window in your home.

Low to no maintenance! There's no need to worry about this tough, drought tolerant plant while you're away. Desert Rose is deer and rabbit resistant and requires only minimal watering. Pruning is also rarely needed with this slow-growing succulent.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
