Ethiopia desert rose (Adenium obesum) is a flowering shrub that grows mainly in the wild but is now enjoying widespread cultivation. In exported form, the potted plant is common in houses and balconies owing to its beautiful, breathtaking appearance. It goes under diverse names with the most popular being desert rose, kudu and mock azalea. It thrives well in the tropics including the horn of Africa and the Arabian peninsula. It is immune to both heat and cold. During the cold season it becomes bare of all leaves yet it continues to sprout again with the onset of the sun. Its beauty lies in the reddish pink flowers that can have an animated flush of white.
In many pastoral regions of Eastern Africa, the desert rose has featured in the production of poison for arrows. The communities, such as the Maasai in Kenya extract the gylcoside-rich fluid from the plant for poisoning their weapons. They then use it for killing animals in the wild. In popular culture, this hardy rose has appeared as the image of post stamps in a number of nations.
We source Ethiopia desert rose from the sunny regions of the country where temperatures do not go below 10 degrees celsius. Our family growers are all over the country, primarily the agricultural southwestern region and the slightly arid northeastern border with Eritrea.
We harvest Ethiopia desert rose when it is about one and a half to two years of age for sales as a potted cutting. By this time the plants have reached maturity and their blooms have appeared for several seasons.
We pack the stem cuttings of Ethiopia desert rose. Stem cuttings are popular for propagation of pot plants in Europe and other western countries. Many times both the fresh cuttings from the fully mature plants resemble the actual seedling. We keep a separation between the two by labeling them in clear terms, so you can distinguish between seedlings and mature offshoots.
We also pack hybrid cultivars that are usually bigger than their unadulterated counterparts. Both produce the same features of colorful, breathtaking flowers. Their caudex, referring to the bulbous growing sections are packed in custom boxes of 2 to 3 centimeters in diameter. They usually comes in pots of at least 6 centimeters across. There are also fancy types that can be as huge as 8 centimeters across, requiring potting of 11 centimeters.
Our cardboard boxes consist of several layers, sometimes for as many as five of the potted flower cuttings. Between each row of the desert roses we place a soft paper that is waxed (sometimes newspapers also do). This ensures they do not cause friction or bruises during the shipping period.
Each of our shipments of Ethiopia desert rose cuttings comes with a phytosanitary certificate. This indicates that it has undergone proper handling and it is free of disease. We transport the cuttings to the Bola International Airport immediately after storage under pre-cooled vehicles.
Therefore, if you are seeking the freshest pot plant from the tropics, consider the classic Ethiopia desert rose from the heart of the country. We source all or plants from family growers who cultivate them under Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) conditions.
