Adenium somalense is one of the most beautiful caudiciform plants. It grows wild in Somalia and through the Rift Valley into Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania.
They have a rather vertical growth habit. Leaves are thin and long, often dark green and glossy.
Depending on the area, its trunk can take different shapes from a fat shrub to a small tree (more than 4 m), differently from the similar species A. obesum whose caudex is mainly underground. The showy flowers are white-pink with a darker edge.
