Cool banner Baja!

Interesting texture and pattern to the photo. Made me look ~ just to see what it was. Very nice.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Thank you all for the kind words and the acorn. Smiling

As requested, a cyathium closeup from the image above.

Thumb of 2019-11-17/Baja_Costero/0430bd

Parts labeled
G=nectar gland (5 per cyathium)
F=female (1 central 3-part structure)
M=male (most already broken off in the wind)

For comparison, here is a male (only) Euphorbia with reddish glands.

E. flanaganii has yellow cyathia (glands):



I have tried to figure out the ID of the plant in the banner (as did the guy I got it from originally) but have found no obvious candidates.

I love the Euphorbia banner, Baja! And I especially like the photo where you labeled: female, male and nectar glands. I always get confused and this helps a lot! Thanks.

Well I'm calling it "Euphorbia bajacosterii". Green Grin!

If anyone is interested in one, I just purchased a 1 gal E. flanaganii-medusa, bare root
for $33 free shipping here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listin...
BTW, on Amazon, they list for $71 for a 9" pot. Blinking

It lists for $45, but that's apparently a glitch.
Contact the seller, Eva, if you'd like one for $33 free shipping (USA)
Tell her "Cal sent me". Smiling

ps- if anyone knows a better source, please let me know.

Forgive my sense of humor but I though the martians had landed. Rolling on the floor laughing Had to take a closer look, thanks for posting the various forms of the Euphorbia. Thank You! Hurray!
