Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Thank you for becoming my newest buddy. You certainly grow some beautiful flowers. My wife went to high school in Duluth and those winters sound scary to me. We visited one summer and I loved it. W.

That is a fantastic specimen of Desert Rose. How do you keep it alive in MN.? Warren

Propagation: Typically by seed. If your plant develops a seed pod, plant the seeds as soon as possible after the pod ripens to maximize chances of germination. The desert rose can be propagated from branch cuttings, but these plants often fail to develop the characteristic (and highly desired) bulbous stem.

Hey girl be careful with those clippings, I just read this :Beware, though, the sap of the desert rose is poisonous and should never come into contact with children or pets. If you get sap on yourself while handling the plant, wash your hands immediately.

I would love a cutting of the Desert Rose, THANKS! Does it have a sweet smell? I can't tell, do you have it in a pot, so you can take the plant inside for the winter? It's much warmer here in Virginia, but still I would think I would have to take it inside for the winter also. So how long does the blooms last? It sort of looks like a bonsai plant of sorts.

Those flowers in your avatar are so pretty and the roots look like the the ones I would see in Hawaii, where the roots would come off the branches. By the way, what is it? I want one!

Did you ever find a black daylily?

Thank you for your concern Mary. Just got back from a 2 weeks vacation in the Philippines visiting my mom and relatives. Best regards. God bless!
