Really nice Bernieh.

Yes I do rather prefer the white. I have the pink too, but the white has stolen my heart. I have it planted up with Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost' and they look fabulous together.

They look great together! I used to have Justicia carnea 'alba' when I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I watered my Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost' to death! :>(
It's a cheap plant I'll buy another one soon. :>)

Thanks Andy, they do make a great pair. The 'Diamond Frost' is now cheap as chips here too. There's a new cultivar out too, which I've also got. It's the Euphorbia hypericifolia 'Hip Hop' which doesn't have quite the spread of the 'Diamond Frost' as it's more compact.

I have seen some of the other hybrids for sale lately. Some have larger leaves and flowers. I haven't seen Euphorbia 'Hip Hop' yet.

Hello you two....I saw this plant today on someones balcony which means it is for sale here!!! I might ask the lady for a cutting if I don't find it for sale.

That's great news, Alexandra. Mine throws up these fantastic plumes intermittently all year round here.

My pink one is about to bloom again. :>)
