Adenium Obesum or the Desert rose
Jatropha Podagrica or the Buddha Belly Plant
Beaucarnea or the Ponytail PalmSome of them form rossettes by complex geometric arrangement of leaves like these Agaves and Haworthias .
Agave Americana variegata
Haworthia limifoliaSome form long spiny columns like these Euphorbias Then there are Kalanchoes which are known for their non exacting, non demanding nature. Some varieties bless their owners with profuse blooms in gorgeous colours, while others have an understated beauty and charm.
Kalanchoe blossfeldianaThe identity of these two plants still eludes me as the local plant nursery person was, unfortunately, more interested in selling them, without caring to know more about their details, and hence I am left only with their physical presence to admire. I wish I can get some more information on them, and I am still searching… Although I have tried my best to name them correctly, but I hate to admit that my knowledge on their exact names is slightly challenged, therefore I request my blogger friends to please point out, if I have bungled somewhere. This little fellow seems to be enjoying the shade, or maybe testing the place for its winter hibernation, blissfully oblivious of the attention he is getting.
