Hi everyone!

Can anyone tell me what this tropical plant is called?

The flowers are very like small roses and the leaves are up to 20cms long, radiating from the stem which looks a bit succulent like. The thorns are brittle as on cactii.
At the moment it stands just over a metre tall.
Thanks in advance (hopefully!)

Thanks Pimpernel...will have a look (if the internet connection holds up for longer than 10 mins... :/

I was thinking it might be some sort of is beautiful (if somewhat dangerous!). It's just known here as 'cactus rose'...
