Here are a few of mine blooming tight now.

'Siam Yellow'
Seems to only have a hint of yellow. I'm not in love with it, but it's nice.

'Madam Violet'
First couple of blooms just opened on my small plant. They are pretty small for adeniums, but still nice. They are more of a true violet/purple than the pic shows. I'm guessing they'll get larger as the plant matures? Anyone have experience with 'Madam Violet'? Does she just have small blooms, or is it like I suspect that's it's just my smaller, immature plant?


Last is my unknown variegated adenium. Very vibrant dark pink blooms. I have 3 of theses, all three from Home Depot. I'm pretty sure all three are likely the same variety (blooms are identical), but one of them has a pinkish-red edge to its leaves while the other two (including the one in the photo) have leaves with white edges.

Hi I know that flowers can change color each year. I wrote the seller about the size because that is one I have been looking at. It is grafted right?

Yes, all three pictured are from grafted plants. Temperature, light, humidity, fertilizer, etc. can all affect flower color, shape & size, so I'm sure that has something to do with it.

Carter the seller got back to me and the flower is fairly small. Say's it blooms in abundance the second year. It is pretty. I still might get Madam Violet. I like the color.

I think 'Madam Violet' is still worth it even for the smaller blooms. They are very pretty in pictures, and even prettier in person.
