Adenium obesum, Echeveria Frilly, and Abelia Kaleidoscope

I have a Desert Rose (Adenium obesum) in a pot with a bunch of succulents.  It happens to bloom each year when the foliage of the succulent Echeveria, from sitting in the sun all day, has pink edges .   A nearby green and chartreuse Abelia, in another pot, contrasts nicely with the hot pink and white flowers.

Beautiful flower! I love how the edges are pink but the rest of the petal is a lighter color.

That color combination is killer!

It's great to "meet" another Texas gardener ... thanks for stopping by my corner of Katy!
