I am a Proud South African

Hi, I am Euphorbia bupleuripholia and I am a Proud South African. Although the sun comes and goes this Sunday it’s my time of the year to shine!

If you want to know more about me and my family there is this awesome website that will open in a new window on your screen.

Association

Looking into details of plants stimulates my imagination. This (in Color and Black & White) is a tiny leaf with thorns of an ‘Euphorbia akmat’ from North Yemen; one of the succulent plants in our collection. Bottom picture is the plant itself which, after one and a half year on its new spot, is starting to grow fast. It can become 6 to 7 meters high.

All those little faces

What you see is an ‘Euphorbia gymnocalycioides’; a very rare succulent plant that originates from Ethiopia. It’s very seldom that one sees this plant in cultivation but this beauty is one of the gems in our garden.

And look closely …. all those little faces.
