Euphorbia erythrocucullata 6 inch pot size
Native to Madagascar south of Manja.
Another member of the Euphorbia milli complex (Crown of Thorns family) but with prominently different flowers. The inflorescence is wrapped in a pair of red beak-like bracts that barely open enough to let the stamen and pistil peak out rather bizarrely. The new spines emerge with a purplish blue hue that later turns to grey.
From controlled pollination of ISI 2006-19 HBG94014.
Available in 6 inch pot size.
Ships in pot.
