Thank you for the kind words. Here is the whole plant (June 28), and another picture taken today (3 months later) to show how it is moving along.

Here are some siblings to show the variation among these seedlings (at least two different fathers that I can tell)... the fat one is growing sideways because a squirrel took a huge bite of it when it was young. (And spat it out afterwards because Euphorbias taste terrible... lesson learned! Smiling )

This is one of the most captivating banners I have seen in a long time. My eye continues to go to it again and again and again. Thank you for posting it. Hurray! Hurray!

Also have never seen this plant will have to look around for it.

If you do go looking, you will find similar Euphorbias under these names

E. polygona
E. anoplia
E. horrida

But the story behind the banner is a little more complicated than that. The ones in the pictures are hybrids, which you aren't likely to find in stores. Green Grin! These plants are dioecious (separate male and female individuals, like humans) so they can't self-pollinate... those three Euphorbias were growing side by side around the time I collected the original seed.

It's much more interesting to grow these plants from seed than from cuttings, because you know the offspring will be different from the mother plant, guaranteed. Thumbs up Here she is doing her girly thing after our first fall shower.
