Adenium obesum (Impala Lily, Desert Rose)


Dec 1999

Dec 1999I have many pots of the plant at home as other Thai houses.

It was the first target of my photo with its strong red flower.  

Unfortunately it took many shots of fails, owing to its intense color.  
Most of the time, color film fails to reproduce its real red color.
Simply too RED.
On slide, its quite nice but once it scanned, the red haze blurs all over.

Nikon FM2n with 50mm lens. (I don't have only that, thus I will not mention about the equipment from now on). 

Adenium Obesum also called Impala Lily, Desert Rose, Adenium Muliflorum, Adenium Coetanum.
In the wild, this species can make a small tree (3.5m) or more withswollen trunk and thick, crooked limbs.  But in cultivation it seldom exceed about 1.5m with a sparse branching habit.
