From sun garden@hospital park, yesterday. Botanical name for ‘Crown of thorns’.. unsure, but I hear this one is best found in Madagascar

Euphorbia milii, the crown of thorns, Christ plant, or Christ thorn, called Corona de Cristo in Latin America, is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family Euphorbiaciae, native to Madagascar. The species name commemorates Baron Milius, once Governor of Réunion, who introduced the species to France in 1821. Wikipedia

    1. Oh these are wild ones, though I see more manicured gardens using these as hedging or all by themselves. They are low maintenance and can take all the sun, and not much rain, so. The title got me curious. 🌻

    1. Yes do. I guess they are also climactic. These grow here with the least amt of attention, lots of sun and minimal water. Had to look it up and found its curiously beautiful name.


  1. Lovely choice! When I moved from home 1976, this euphorbia was my first flower in my first own home! They had just arrived to Sweden then. How great to see it again, it is not so common here these days.

    1. Thankyou Leya, yes I love this one. It grows easily enough here, India, not much water or shade needed. Was fascinated at its title too, and that it’s not originally Indian at all. Seen here in white, darker pink , deep red, and even pale green!
