Saw these Adeniums in a local nursery during our vacation a couple of weeks ago:

this one is like ready to escape but changed its mind

this one has no blooms yet, but I like the variegated leaves and prominent caudex:

Now this one is in bloom at my mom-in-law's garden, I did not get to take a photo of how it was planted, but will just describe it, planted on regular soil, which looks quite clayish loam, still plant survives well. Quite long limbs already, I guess the plant is trying to get as much sunshine as it can have.

They do try to leave home sometimes... And clay soil is fine, as long as it's well drained.

Nice photos, thanks for posting!

Yeah, the soil seems to drain well, and they do have the temps that the Adeniums love to grow in! Big Grin
