EUPHORBIA : THE LITTLE PALE ORANGE IS BLOOMING

My front garden look so crowded on the beginning of  this dry season.
We have a dry week since the second week of June.
Some 'dry lover' plants are forming their flower buds.

'

And... I found my little Paku Giwang (Euphorbia milii) with the pale orange flower was blooming.
This plant is a tough plant.
But it should be planted in dry area with full sunshine showering it each day.


This is one of my Euphorbia collection.
I love its colorful flower.




Please enjoy the beauty and have a wonderful weekend.
And... happy gardening!

    1. There are so many Euphorbia varieties. This plant is poisonous, if it is eaten raw. Here this plant is usually used as medicinal stuff.
      Thanks to remind me.

  3. I've never seen euphorbia with pink/orange blossoms - ours here have lime green flowers, some plants have red. This is very beautiful - would happily grow this over here in my garden! Euphorbias can tolerate light shade as well as sun; the darker leaves on yours would suggest light shade to make it happy. What is the silver leaved plant on the left of top photo?

    1. Yes, I have to make a good plan on lay out and placement of my plants collection. So various and so many different type on growth.
      The silver leaved is Anting Putri (Tabernaemontana corymbosa variegata).
