Can anyone tell me what kind of plant this is? I bought it earlier today and it says it's a parod mary but can not find any information on anything called that. Any information would be helpful.

Hi Melissaandcolt, Welcome!

Your plant looks to be a variety of Desert Rose (Adenium obesum)

I agree Adenium

LOL, I thought it might be misspelled and was meant to be "Proud Mary" but I couldn't find an Adenium cultivar by that name either. The Thai varieties do have unusual names. Check out some of the cultivar names in our database: https://garden.org/plants/brow...
