  Wax Rose

 

Thailand

The Wax Rose, is a large evergreen shrub, that grows up to five metres tall and blooms all year round, bearing showy orange flowers.  In Thai, it is known as Kulaab Pukaam, which means ‘Burmese Rose’.

 

However, despite its name the Wax Rose is not a rose, but a deciduous, leaved cactus, that grows to a woody, prickly shrub, with a stem that is not succulent and hardly resembles the typical desert cacti. See also List of Thai Botanical Names.
