Desert Rose

I've always really liked the song "Desert Rose" by Sting.

On a side note: I saw him once in concert in Costa Rica. After the concert a couple of  my friends and me went to a sushi restaurant at a hotel were one of friends was living at the time and were Sting was staying (but we didn't know), so we saw him at the restaurant and even got to sit at his same table... it was cool!

But anyway, as I mentioned before I always really liked this song and even the video is o.k. although I never really knew there really was such a plant/flower (the video does show a single one of this plant/flowers) until one day my husband brought home a plant with that same name.

He said that when he got it, they told him that it's supposed to be a very beautiful flower, we waited a few months and finally it bloom and I agree it is very beautiful.

I've read a little bit about them and they seem to grown in really arid areas in Africa so they are a very good option for people that want a plant that needs barely no attention or water as they are pretty adaptable. Also I hear that the very big plants are very valuable and expensive... ours is small still! Unfortunately I also read that the flowers are very poisonous if eaten, so if you are ever lost on the desert and feel like eating one of those flowers to survive it would not be a wise choice.
