Jamaican Poinsettia / Euphorbia punicea

Jamaican Poinsettia / Euphorbia punicea
This beautiful Jamaican Poinsettia shrub/tree is growing in the Conservatory at the Calgary Zoo. Photo taken on 6 October 2015. The west entrance to the Zoo will be closed from 13 October till April 2016, so I did want to get in another visit before then. I don't like the drive home on Deerfoot Trail from the north entrance, so tend not to go to the Zoo all winter. "Calgary's infamous freeway has taken the dubious top spot when it comes to this city's most dangerous place to drive." From the Calgary Sun.


"Euphorbia punicea, the Jamaican Poinsettia, has long red bracts with golden yellow flowers. Although it still contains a poisonous latex, which can be converted to the equivalent of gasoline, it is popular with honeybees and butterflies."
