Show Us Your "Somalenses"

As you know, "somalenses" are fast-growing conical-shaped adeniums with showy pink to red "pointed" flowers and lanceolate leaves. The species is definitely one of my favourites and this thread is dedicated to these majestic trees. ;-) Lets see some!

This one is one of my "left-overs", pruned many times over the years and neglected badly. But I revived it and now it is my #1 somalense. ;-) The normal globular caudex of seedlings is gone. It has grown into a conical almost tree-like trunk.

I want to train the somalense again, but I will let it grow some more. You see, it has never bloomed and I am hoping that it will. Soon... :-)
