Desert Rose, Coleus, and Crown of Thorns

Our desert rose's love the sub-tropical climate of the Tampa Bay area. They like it dry, but seem to take massive amounts of rain without too much trouble. This one sits on the front porch and took the full brunt of 2 1/4 inches one recent afternoon and evening.

We hadn't had rain for 5 or 6 weeks at our house, but when it rains in Florida, it REALLY rains. We got 5 1/2 inches in a week. The beds in the front of the house appreciated it. The crown of thorns and coleus plants appreciated it.
