Euphorbia x lomi 'Sunshine'

Newer Older

Close-up of a euphorbia hybrid that is a cross between Euphorbia lophogona and Euphorbia millii. This evergreen succulent shrub grows 2 to 3 feet tall with gray spiny stems that display small oblong pale green leaves at the tips with orange/yellow/pink flowers. Drought tolerant, grows in full sun and hardy to about 30 degrees F. A new addition to my garden this year.

    Wow, thanks everyone for the comments and invitations.

    This hybrid is indeed similar to Crown of Thorns, Euphorbia milii with decidedly different flower color. The petals are technically bracts and the flower is in the center. Ruth, I will take a larger photo of this plant as it matures... it's still pretty small... indeed it has spines, you can see one in the lower left corner. Curious to see if this grows compact, or more rangy like Euphorbia milii.

    I love the tones of apricot, peach and green and how the bokeh reflects those colors.
