I'm not certain that the zigzag plant and jacobs ladder are in the same family of plants.... 🤔 @lovestogarden @brightcolours @PlantDoctor @KelsiBriana @ShelleySnyder - thoughts?

“Euphorbia tithymaloides is a perennial succulent spurge.[1] An erect shrub,[2] the plant is also known by the scientific name Pedilanthus tithymaloides. However, the genus Pedilanthus has been submerged into the genus Euphorbia, and is more correctly known by its new name (Euphorbia tithymaloides).[3][4]” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euphorbia_tithymaloides

Kari, apparently Jacob’s ladder is one of its common names (it has many!!). 😳 It’s also had a proper name change, which needs to be reflected in the GT plant encyclopaedia. See my quotes from Wiki above. ⬆️⬆️⬆️ @KariSamuel @lovestogarden @PlantDoctor @KelsiBriana @ShelleySnyder #plantencyclopaediauodaterequired
