Is this a desert rose?

10 years ago

I picked up a plant on the weekend. It was rather tall and spindly looking (needed a prune) anyway it looks exactly like a desert rose, same branches and leaves and even has desert rose like pink flowers yet it doesnt have a fat caudex. In fact it looks alot like a normal plants trunk ...i am confused. The woman at the plant stall and i both thought it was a desert rose yet the trunk is so different then any other one ive seen. I have attached a picture of the trunk, stems (i already started pruning) and flowers so you can have alook. I would love to know if you guys think its a desert rose or not?
