One-Day Yellow Desert RoseTuesday, September 29, 2009
When I was at a nursery about two months ago, I came across a yellow-flower Desert Rose and I immediately liked it very much.
When I asked the nursery owner for a young yellow plant, he offered me this one that has no flower on it. Since it was the last plant, I just believed him and paid for it.
The plant is a grafted one.
The plant has grown much taller, lushier and sprouted a number of new buds. I must say that this Desert Rose does grow fast.
At first I noticed that the buds are pinkish...
In the morning the next day, the flower opened a little...
By noon the flower opened fully...
It has a beautiful star-shape flower and it is creamy yellow and slightly pinkish from the tip of the petals. The flower throat is pink.
This was really what I wanted ;-)
Later I discovered that the yellow part of the flower would turn white after about two days (not one day as the name suggests!).
What's your favourite Desert Rose flower colour?
