This beautiful succulent plant has a bonsai look. It has a chubby trunk and gorgeous green leaves with bunches of single or double flowers in a variety of colors. Desert Roses are sun-loving plants, the more sun they get, the more they will flower!
Plant them in the landscape in zones 10 and higher. These succulent plants store water in their trunk, making them drought tolerant. To enjoy these plants in colder zones, simply pop them in a pot and bring inside the home when temperatures consistently drop below 50. If you live in an area that gets a lot of rain, the soil must be very well-drained. Use a succulent potting mix and a container with proper drainage if planting them in container gardens. Fertilize Desert Roses before the blooming season and throughout the season for best results. Select a fertilizer formulated for desert roses. When feeding, follow the product label instructions for strength and frequency.
