From the desert in North Yemen

Endemic to the desert in North Yemen is the Euphorbia achmat but it grows very prosperous in our garden here in South Africa. This is a natural variegated specie with one of the 4 lobes on one side green and the leafs are half green and half yellowish. The non-variegated original specie is yellowish with pale green stripes.

In Black & White the image looks better than in full color.

    We have some Euphorbia growing – entirely dangerous stuff, but fascinating

      Indeed fascinating Kiwisan! Plants with spines can look dangerous and Euphorbia species are also (highly) poisonous but so are many plants without spines…..
