Found one outside our apartment that just looks the shape of a crown ! Flowers are over and no foliage to speak of , but thick thorny stems coming up out of the ground in a circle. No camera with me but I will try and take it before we leave . @joanboston

I've only known it as a houseplant here. My dad grew it, can't remember when it flowered @junebensted

Hi June 👋 just spotted that you've linked this to the Lutea crown of thorns which is actually a yellow variety. There is a correct entry in the database called Christ plant or euphorbia milii which Os the correct encyclopaedia entry for this plant. It's easily corrected by going to your profile, finding your plant and swiping right to left to reveal an edit button. Tap on that and then you can relink to the correct plant record. Hope this helps 👍
