Euphorbia viguieri

The leaves of this Euphorbia change color from green to bright red before falling for the winter.

Cool banner Baja!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

This banner introduced me to another member of this varied and fascinating genus. Of course, most of us are familiar with another euphorbia that undergoes such a color change, namely poinsettia. Excellent banner.

An intriguing species of plants that warrants precaution. Interesting to look at, but not touching your face or tasting the milky secretion from the plant. Glad I'm introduced to the plant via your modernistic banner.

I like the aerial perspective on this Euphorbia. It makes for an interesting banner. Thumbs up

I am not familiar with E. viguieri. Does it offer blooms as well?
