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.

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!
