Euphorbia Bubalina by annied

Euphorbia Bubalina

This species is native to Cape Provinces and KwaZulu-Natal in Africa.
While googling this particular euphorbia I discovered the flowers are reduced in size and aggregated into a cluster of flowers called a cyathium (plural cyathia) and this feature is present in every species of the genus Euphorbia but nowhere else in the plant kingdom.
Cyathium is a type of inflorescence in which a cup-like cluster of modified leaves encloses a female flower and several male flowers. It resembles a single flower.
I love learning something new :)
Well done on the presentation.

Brilliant. For your Get Pushed challenge what do you think of abstract landscape? I hope you can return the favour by challenging me to something.
