Ok My desert rose's leaves are turning on the tips and falling off as are the flowers. It is outside so it might be too cold but I am not sure what is causing this help

Cold weather can cause the leaves and flowers to drop suddenly. If your desert rose is in a container you can bring it indoors and grow it as a houseplant from November through April. If your plant is outdoors, just stop watering to allow it to go dormant. It should be just fine with occasional rainfall - or you can water it once every 4-6 weeks during the wintertime.
