Desert Rose (Adenium Obesum) is native to southern Africa and Arabia. When planted in the ground, Adenium can grow 4 to 6 feet tall with tons of spectacular flowers. The most striking feature of this plant is its caudex which can be shaped like a sculpture. Since it is not normally a deep root plant, shallow bonsai pots are great to cultivate and show off their extraordinary-looking caudex. This species of flowering plant could well be a good one for someone starting their bonsai experience.
