This is one of my adenium that just flowered even though I had pulled it off the ground and did some surgery on it to remove part of a rotten caudex.
It's doing remarkably well, given that I haven potted it yet. I was surprised with the flower, which opened this morning-The edges are a deep blue, almost purple. Is this normal?

Now I'm waiting for the other blooms to open- I am wondering if they all have that same coloring at the edges. Lovey dubby

Mine are variable with the blue edges. I suspect if the plant has extra food stored, this happens.
