I would think this is Euphorbia x lomi, a hybrid of Euphorbia lophogona x milii. The common name is Thai Giant, a fancy type of Crown of Thorns.

Do we need to add that to our database?

I don't think we got a positive ID yet. It is Euphorbia, and I call it Crown of Thorns but that is a common name that can be applied to many of the hybrids and cultivars.

calm Ursula..... Smiling
I gave it the correct identification. This is called Euphorbia x lomi, it is a hybrid of Euphorbia lophogona and milii. The first two letter of each species made for x lomi.

Ok, I had to go back and re-read your second post to grasp what you meant. I was still thinking your first post was a guess.
