Great one, Baja! I have sent a few but I don't think they have been used.

Thanks, guys. This is one of 7 sibling Euphorbia hybrids, a mix of boys and girls, but for whatever reason he ended up with the fattest stem of the bunch. These plants are fab because they are squirrel-proof.

Beautiful banner, and it's good to know they are squirrel proof. I'll have to look for some.

I think most of the succulent Euphorbias taste pretty terrible to mammals, if they don't actually burn. The naive squirrels may take a big bite at snout level, thinking how green and succulent the plant looks, but then they immediately spit it out. Here is a plant from that group that I recently put into well populated squirrel territory knowing this, and a couple months later the new kid on the block bit off a big mouthful, and spit it out on top of the mulch. I don't think they come back for more after they try it. Smiling

Beautiful banner, Baja! Nice to see a cactus get some screen time.
