Genus Adenium

Once I saw a blooming adenium. From that moment I set my mind on growing this fantastic flower. For the beginning, I decided to find more information about it. The genus adenium is a part of the dogbane family. Its native habitat is Arabian Peninsula and sub-Saharan Africa. But it is easy to grow it in our weather conditions.

The last twenty years were very successful for adenium cultivation. That’s why the list of its species is really large today. Besides, adenium is known as a perfect plant for grafting. Beautiful hybrids made this plant even more popular.
