And a few more Euphorbias ---

ariole(z7DE)November 12, 2005

One of the great features of these particular plants - they don't seem to demand a lot of direct winter sunlight. I have some of those nooks and crannies in the winter g/h.

(I'm growing more confident trying to post three thumbs in a row. Next thing I will try is bold or even colored type. Maybe not this month :-))

Really neat Euphorbs, Al...this post and your other! Some I'd never seen! :)
I recently noticed flowers for the first time on my pathetic looking plant (just hanging on). Trying to capture it in focus (cyathia?) is another story with my camera! Here's my Euphorbia decaryi v. spirosticha

That would be them, Rosemarie. I'm glad you have your finger in there for scale. And what color would you call them? Thanks for posting.

Ha ha, Al...I always get my finger in on those dinky things (for scale)...sometimes dirty fingernails, but that's a gardener for ya! Color? Hmmm...manila? Flesh? (some peoples', anyway) Peachy yellow?

Thanks for posting YOURS, Al! I love to see your specimens!!!

CP, its always nice when someone asks the name of a plant that has a label. :-)

That one is going with the name 'Euphorbia cylindrifolia var. tuberifera'.

Thanks for the nice complements.
