It's all relative...to us San Diegans...it's just a common garden tree.

Milky, yes the name is very specific. : > )

Sandra, this is medium-sized tree...they can grow much taller and wider.

Staggering! We have a good collection of Euphorbiaceae at Kew but its good to see them growing as nature intended.It's hard for me to single out any of your pictures to comment on as they are all brilliant.Keep them coming!

Thanks for your kind words.

I can't drive or walk anywhere here in the
district of San Diego where I live and not see
several species of Euphorbia growing in the landscape.
I will keep the photos coming.

Sandra:

Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoy my photos also.

Sixpence:

Many of the larger species of Euphorbia will rarely grow more than 6ft/2m tall as an indoor plant.
