My Big Euphorbia MiliiWednesday, January 27, 2010
I have gained much satifaction from growing a big-flower Euphorbia Milii (EM).
Compares with the normal-sized EM (on the left in the pic below), the flower of this big version is very showy and noticeable.
About three months ago, the plant was about half its present height...
This EM gives big flowers that are in light yellow, blended with green and pink. The pink colour appears later (after green markings). As the flower grows older, the green markings become less prominent. So far it has been delivering a maximum of four flowers in a bunch. And they last for a long time... like for weeks!
Now, I wonder why the colours of the flower are different from when I first saw the plant. I snapped the pic below right after I took the plant home. As you can see, the flowers were more pink and white. Have you encountered similar experience?
EMs like full sun and well drained soil. To learn more about Euphorbia Milii, click here.
