(Euphorbia milii 'Creme Supreme')
This Crown of Thorns was purchased along with Jordan's recently purchased:
- Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' ("Rubber Tree Plant")
- Aglaonema 'Emerald Beauty"
- Alocasia amazonica 'Polly' ("Elephant Ear Plant")
At the Lowe's in Owatonna, MN. Jordan was ecstatic to visit a new Lowe's location and check out a new plant section with new and different plants! Our goal is to hit up every Lowe's in Minnesota.
As Jordan was cleaning up a few of the dead leaves from this plant he noticed some white ooze coming out of a few places on the plant. After researching the plant he found out that that substance is an irritant and could have really bothered his skin.
Did you know?
Euphorbia - Euphorbus was the Greek physician of King Juba II (about 50 BC to 19 AD) of Numidia (present day Algeria). King Juba II was the first person to find a succulent-type Euphorbia, and he named it after his physician.
Milii - named for Baron Milius, once governor of the island of Bourbon, who introduced the species into cultivation in France in 1821. (From: http://www.wanapluk.com/crown-of-thorns-plant/)
