Euphorbia ammak variegated

Post Number:#1  Postby Geoff » Sun Jul 06, 2014 10:14 pm

This is probably one of the two most commonly grown large Euphorbias in southern California (Euphorbia ingens being the more common one)... it is a great specimen plant, but not a cold hardy one (see shot of 'burned plant below)... mild frosts don't hurt it much, but temp drops into the mid 20s do it some serious damage. Euphorbia ingens is actually no more hardy, though.

These are top notch ornamental's. They rate near the top as large or over sized potted plants. They can grow forever in them and still allow other plants to do well in the same planter.

One is in a clawfoot tub planter. The other I planted after seeing the first one do well in a "container".

I know absolutely nothing about the blooming habits of this plant. Now that it has flowered for the first time, will flowering be a yearly event, or will you need to wait another decade and a half for it to flower again? Or does it just depend on the correct alignment of the cosmic forces?

Congratulations on the blooms. These are very impressive plants with or without them.

Thank you Azul. It gets a bit more shade than it wants. It's ok. At its size,I don't mind if it were to slow down.

Somehow the variegated Euphorbia ammak loves the So CA climate. I see more in my neighborhood every day. I have 3 six-footers, and they seem to grow at least a foot a year. One of the easiest & showiest xeric plants around.

I have a personal list of things that grow fine here..but wont bloom,or very rarely. Warm enough to grow..but blooms harder to come by with heat needy plants. Why I am so happy with Mango tree's. Just enough for them to blooms and fruit. Still waiting for Pseudobombax,Pachypodiums not half man ( that blooms,go figure)Agave attenuata and a few more...

Schefflera arboricola? It can and does reach tree size here. Never seen a single one bloom. Not one. I've seen photo's of them in 6" pots in soucal or the Canary Islands..in bloom. Funny thing is - the more tender S.dizzygothica? Does bloom. Mine does every year now.
