Spina di Cristo

Spina di Cristo
today only flowers from my balcony and all succulent !

Euphorbia milii (crown of thorns, Christ plant, Christ thorn) is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family Euphorbiaciae, native to Madagascar. The species name commemorates Baron Milius, once Governor of Réunion, who introduced the species to France in 1821.
It is suspected that the species was introduced to the Middle East in ancient times, and legend associates it with the crown of thorns worn by Christ. It is also found in Kerala, India. There is a tale stating that there were Jews living in Kerala and they brought the Christ thorn plant from Israel to India.

¿ Y por qué se llama espina de Cristo esta planta ?.

Tocar las espinas. Vereis que se doblan. Es un nombre un poquito contradictorio. ¿ Tal vez las espinas de Cristo en la cruz se doblaban ?.

Es una planta de cactus de gran belleza.

Necesita de zonas muy cálidas para que de una floración suficiente.

Mis felicitaciones Nora por esta maravillosa foto.
