Some posts ago I featured Euphorbia milii commonly known as Crown of Thorns. Well, now after a bit of a mutation situation here is its elegantly electrifyin' twin, Euphorbia milii 'Fireworks'. I happened upon this beauty the other day and was blown away by its super sizzlin' spines. Its foliage of cream and green, edged in the fiery fierce color of its thorns, makes this specimen a technicolor dream. It also produces whirling, swirling, pinkish red bracts centered with small yellow flower forms like its non-variegated twin. Click here.
The look of Euphorbia milii 'Fireworks' tantalizes with a spine tingling style and fiery fierce profile. To see such fascinating form and color creates a certain intrigue. You could say it looks dangerous and diabolical but in my eyes Euphorbia milii 'Fireworks' dares you to cultivate and celebrate its delicious dreaminess.
