Mystery Plant


This beautiful central Florida plant is an enigma to me. But I thought it pretty enough to post. Perhaps one of my blogging friends will know what it is?

I image-googled "red flowering plant with thorny stems" and found one called (appropriately enough) "Crown of Thorns". What do you think?

I do not know your name . They seem wildflowers. She is pretty.
Un abrazo.

I think it is a type of Euphorbia aka crown of thorns! Quite pretty! I had one a long time ago but it has been gone for a while now. ;-)

I guess you got your answer! I had no idea what it is, but it sure is pretty.

Others seem to know... I would have been hopeless on this one.

Redpat has the answer. It is what she said. Prickly thing.
I was so sad about the greenhouse I almost cried. We put so much work into it and it is full of little plants just starting and some newly planted seeds. I hope they will be ok. Haven't been there yet this morning. It got down to 39 overnight. WAH!!!
Thanks for your concern though. It helps.

I think RedPat is probably right but, I don't know for sure. I do like those bright red blooms.

I like euphorbia, ours don't look anything like this beauty!

Karl Demetz said...

No idea, for me they are nice red flowers...

Kay said...

No, no! What's this "euphorbia" business? It's a Central Florida red-flowering enigma! Anyone can see that! ;-)

Crown of Thorns, Lowell. Every New England evacuee knows that.

Such pretty flowers on those mega thorny stems, that seems like an unusual pairing!
