Adenium dhofarense is a local or morphological form of Adenium obesum, but commonly used to be know as a separate species. It is a succulent shrub or shrubby tree up to 3 m high, the shape resembling a dwarf baobab. The stems arise from a large thickened rootstock and have peculiar characteristics that reflect the harsh environment in which it lives. A. dhofarense forms one of the nicest caudex of the genus, and each individual plant is unique in it own right. However some common characteristics have been highlighted: some plants are tree-like up to 3 m tall with a densely branched crown; other plants have long branches, even up to 3 meters long, forming a large crown that usually branches from a single robust root. Most of the plants, however, are 1-1,5 m tall and have an irregular globose crown, surmounted by a few often long branches. A characteristic often observed in the species is the ability of some of the longest branches to produce roots at the point where they touch the ground and thus give rise to a new plant. It has extremely large, leathery and glossy leaves with more substance than those of most other adeniums and very small flowers that are usually produced when the plants are leafless. It grows very slowly.
