OTHER: The Desert Rose is an African native that, despite its common name, is actually from tropical climate conditions rather than desert conditions. These small trees are popular because of their large caudices (swollen trunk bases), large showy brightly colored flowers, and evergreen succulent leaves that only grow at the tips of the branches as the flowers do. The flowers come in various shapes and colors, and some are fragrant. The blooms are somewhat similar to those of Plumeria, and are often up to 3” wide. They are very tropical and exotic looking and come in such a stunning array of color combinations, they are almost unbelievably gorgeous! They are deer resistant, and in cooler climates, the Desert Rose can be over wintered indoors or grown as a houseplant. These plants are very long lived and can live to be hundreds of years old. Many believe this to be a great bonsai specimen. The sap of the plants is poisonous if ingested, so use caution.

Very happy with the purchase. 8 desert rose seeds sprouted out of the 15 after 14 days. I believe 1 more is coming up. Recommend buying from this seller.

Just got my seeds! They were packaged really well and I was very happy with them. It took a little bit of time but I assume they’ve been slammed given the circumstances. The seeds all look healthy and have a great label with all of the info you need to grow them. they even caught that I made multiple orders and packaged them all together, with a free gift of some herbs. 💚thank you!

Arrived quickly and packaged securely in a small bubble envelope that was able to fit in my mail box. I will def order here again. I have had so much bad luck with seed vendors on Etsy...I am glad to have finally found a reliable shop.
