   This member of the Apocynaceae family was described by Isaac Bayley Balfour in 1888. It is found in the deserts of southern and western Arabian peninsula, in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. It will grow up to 45 centimetres in diameter or even 150 centimetres, and the stems will grow up to two or even four meters in height. The flowers are dark pink and white.

I found so many in Oman, and their character changed along with the climate. Some were tall, some flat.
