Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia milii hybrid)
Styled in Vance Planter Set of 2
Euphorbias have over 2,000 varieties and originate from South America, Africa and Asia. The Crown of Thorns type showcase spectacular flowers that grow in clusters. They are considered indestructible because they can grow year-round on a sunny windowsill in a warm, bright location, tolerating long periods of dryness.
Euphorbias are also one of those tried and true houseplants that get passed down from generation to generation. Lately, there has been an effort, particularly in Thailand, to hybridise a dazzling array of colours and large sized blooms compared to the traditional species.
