Adenium mutliflorum

The Impala Lily is one of the stunning plants that you will find in many of the camps in Kruger National Park.

These rather ugly plants give a stunning display of pink and white flowers in winter.

The Impala Lily is a succulent shrub that can grow up to 3 m tall.

The plant sheds its leaves before flowering.

Although these plants put on a fantastic show in the 'safety' of a park camp, they do not get the chance to do so in the wild as many species of mammal eat them.
