We are releasing Mark Dimmitt‘s new hybrid Adenium, ‘Arabian Ruby,‘ with this offering. This hybrid is a cross between the well-known hybrid Adenium obesum ‘Black Ruby‘ with the Shada form of Adenium arabicum, which comes from the Jebel Shada in Saudi Arabia. This is a very unusual Adenium because the leaves create scars on the stem, which cause the stem to grow in a zigzag pattern. The flowers are a stunning rose-red color with a yellow-white striped throat, and they are borne year-round in a greenhouse setting. These plants are well-established rooted cuttings in 8-inch pots. Unlike the rooted cuttings of some Adeniums, this hybrid creates a very nice caudex, and it has a higher cold and rot tolerance than most Adeniums.
