Inspired by Linda’s Euphorbia quiz last week – here’s another:
Euphorbia tirucalli ‘Firesticks’ in the Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech (right before we dug it up due to impending frost). Am hoping for a "comment of approval" from Hap (Mister Cactus Jungle) on this nice specimen…not bad for Zone 6a!
Same funky little leaflets/antennae… just like Linda’s Euphorbia lactea ‘Cristata’
GP factoid: also known as "milkbush," the latex sap contains terpenoids – it apparently has potential as an energy source or "hydrocarbon plant."
