Adeniums and Pachypodiums

Family: Apocynaceae

Adenium, (also known as Desert Rose) will be well known to succulent enthusiasts, but considering the current high level of interest in water-conservation, could be adopted more widely in Queensland as an ornamental. They have showy flowers and an interesting growth habit.

However, they are very poisonous (they are in the same family as the Oleander).

Pachypodium species are members of the same family, and are often discussed in conjunction with the adeniums as they have a somewhat similar growth habit. One of the most obvious differences is the presence of distinctive spines on the trunk.
