I used to grow a lot of Euphorbias, but not I grow only the milii and milii-type Euphorbias. They're so great because I've always got some in bloom, and some literally bloom all year round. I wanted to share a few of my favorites...

Here are two of the giant Thai hybrids (I only have room for a couple!):


And these are my favorites of the regular sized:

This one is E. milii v. lutea, the blooms form rows:


And this is one that usually has solid red flowers, but got this weird one. I was told by a Euphrobia expert it's because the flowers are actually altered leaves, which means this one didn't form quite right:


Anyone else care to show their Crown of Thorns? I never tire of looking at them!

I do have one plant and I just love it. It blooms nearly all the time. Thanks for sharing. Yours are beautifull.

I can't remember who but someone posted a picture of their Crown of Thorns just a few days ago,I posted on it that someone was looking for one but naturally I couldn't remember your name then either,but w/ some luck you might find it. Sorry I can't remember pertinent info.

This plant is absolutely gorgeous. Could I grow it in zone 7 and is it a houseplant or a perennial for outside?The blooms are so lovely.

I've never seen crown of thorns but everyone I've seen on here are so pretty and some are so huge and full.

These are lovely, Denise!  Have grown these twice thru the years.  Each one lived many years and then died...not sure of life span.  Easy to propagate from cuttings for friends, too.  Mine were always coral blooms but were abundant and really enjoyed them.  A GS friend sent me some cuttings but had to move soon after and they didn't and sadly didn't make it...

"The boys that are coming to help me eat it right off the plant. They are whole/raw food eaters. I'm hoping to learn from them too. But I like warm cooked foods so it will be hard for me to go raw all the way for awhile."

"Keryn I grow sorrel but I don't eat it since I don't like things that make me pucker. It goes in salads and anything else you like that tastes like biting into a lemon. Treat it like any other green. Put sorrel recipes into your search…"
