There is a sad country named Oman, that's roughly between Africa and India. I just think it's sad because it's incredibly dry. A species of Adenium grows there called omani. Here are some photos, click on the first one, then use the > arrows on the edge of each photo. I love #9!!! And #5!!!!

OK, what to do, click the first photo. A larger photo will appear. Then, inside that photo, on the right or left edge, there will appear an arrow when you put your cursor nearby.--- >

Doris, do you mean the photo in my first post here?, which are not omanis, by the way! Omanis have only pink blossoms like other arabicum types.

Oh I think Oman is a nice and fun place to discover too, it just depends which website you are looking at Smiling

Would be fun to really see the Adeniums in their wild setting. Big Grin

Oman was hit by a rare typhoon over this past weekend. Instead of 8/10ths inch of rain, average for June, some parts got 9 to 16 inches of rain in 24 hours. ! Whoosh, floods anyone? They had enough warning so no one was hurt, the article says. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/...

The wild ones must be few and far apart, I would guess.

Doris, the stacked photos must be a new trick of Dave's? Me no know!
