This desert rose plant gives intense, continual blooms. What's not to love? #desertrose #pinkandyellow #intense #tropical

@ripjuju Yes! Full sun! Sunny, hot, and dry! Mine are in the sunniest part of my yard in big pots and they flower like crazy!

Both Desert Rose plants are starting to wind down in their blooming.

This is one of two large, old potted Desert Rose plants that I have. They were given to me a few years ago. They have not been fertilized or repotted since I have had them. They seem to thrive in their current condition. I would love to plant them in the ground. I am in zone 10 which is subtropical. What do you think - repot or plant?

Hash tags are a great way to group photos by topic and/or subject matter. Anyone can start a hashtag or add to one. Simply place a # ahead of any word or phrase you want to create or add to. 😊

I'd put one in ground and see how it goes. Would also take cuttings from both and keep in pots. #advice

@brightcolours I didn't even think about taking cuttings from these two magnificent plants. They are so huge and the blossoms are so pretty that having more would not be a bad thing!
