Christ Plant



Taken in Bangalore in July 2010.

Euphorbia milii, Crown of Thorns, Christ Plant is a woody, succulent species of Euphorbia native to Madagascar. The species name commemorates Baron Milius, once governor of Réunion, who introduced the species to France in 1821. It is suspected that the species was introduced to the Middle East in ancient times, and legend associates it with the crown of thorns worn by Jesus.


Check out my photos of the same plant, different colour.
