Thanks for your kind words.

I can't drive or walk anywhere here in the
district of San Diego where I live and not see
several species of Euphorbia growing in the landscape.
I will keep the photos coming.


Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoy my photos also.

Many of the larger species of Euphorbia will rarely grow more than 6ft/2m tall as an indoor plant.
