Every womens favorite. One dozen red roses makes every thing better. (Right)

Florist loves when men makes mistakes because they make big money.

Roses are perennial which contains over 100 species. With stems that are arm with thorns.

Roses are subject to many diseases maybe that is why I have such a hard time with a rose bush in my yard, They never seem to come back the next year and have tried every thing.

Desert Rose

This is one of my favorites. I got this from a friend he brought me the seeds and we started it together. That was last November and mine now is about 8 inches high with a lot of leaves but no flowers yet. The trunk on these gets really thick and sometimes turns into really odd shapes. So far mine is doing great. They store water in the trunk so do not water any more then once a week.

And it most be kept really warm. I window with a lot of sunshine is the best. This plant is know for not needing a lot of care. But the more care you give them the better they will grow and the more flowers you will get.

The older the flower the more valuable they are. Some older plants have sold for over 1000.00 dollars. Maybe someday mine will get that big. The flowers come in red, white, pink and rose.
