Euphorbia ramena is a new species (2015) from Northern Madagascar.
Due to the neat beard of red bristles that turn black with age growing around the branch tips, ramena is aptly nicknamed the bearded euphorb. In addition to the red bristles, the plant also gets its name from where it grows, the limestone pockets in the Red Tsingys. The word ramena also means "red" in Madagascan.
This exceptional new species is another one of the miniature Madagascan caudiciforming euphorbs. It also boasts some of the most interesting colorful cyathia of the group with shades of red, pink, yellow, and green somewhat banded around the cyathia. A must have plant.
Available in 4 inch pots.
