WOW! Our Devil's Backbone Has Flowers!

Looky here!


I found this info on the Dave's Garden website:

Euphorbia tithymaloides'Variegatus' - also known as Variegated Devil's Backbone, Japanese Poinsettia, Slipper Spurge, Redbird Cactus and Christmas Candle.  Read more:http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1716/#ixzz30wOGThdd

I've never seen this plant bloom!  Before we moved it to this shady area, it had more pink/white color on the leaves.  I wonder if this is why it bloomed?  More energy into flowering than protecting its leaves?  Or we just never noticed!



This "bird cover" area is in need of raking and mulching. Something else to add to the to do list.

Happy Yardening!
