Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

This #ottoman #succulent showed up on Pinterest with a whole bunch of what looked like Arabic and the word "Euphorbia" plunked in the middle of the foreign script. Anyone know the correct name? # plantid

Maybe an #euphorbia obesa symmetrica ?

Comparing them, @txgardener E. obesa doesn't have the little hexagons all over the skin like this one has. And it's much bluer and purplier. This guy is green as a Martian's tongue. But it's so nice and #pentagonal

Ohhh, I found a bunch of pics of this guy when I was trying to ID my not-obesa about a month ago! 😩 I don't recall what it is, but I think I remember it being a monstrose form. Let me see if I can retrace my steps, and I'll let you know if I can find it again.

NOICE. Congrats!! Did you get it?? I got an Etsy bargain bin one a while ago, too, bc it was etiolated. Still looks cool, but doesn't look the way it should. 😂
