Bob, I appreciate your walking us thru your collection. I think this feature is going to give many of us a better knowledge of plants, putting the names with the faces. I have several Euphorbias but really had no good idea of most of yours. It was sad to hear you say how many you lost.

I am not remotely surprised at the wonders you have growing here in these pictures Geoff. Most of these are entire "Gardens in a pot"! Landscapes in a pot mostly,... and Thank You for sharing. They are inspirational.

It is very sad that I lost a lot, but I have to say there is literally no information on cultivational needs for most of these Euphorbias, particularly in terms of cold tolerance, so at least I am 'discovering' some limits to some of these plants and finding that some actually are good choices as landscape and potted outdoor plants in a Mediterranean climate (and many simply are not). Sadly some innocent victims have been lost in the name of pseudoscience.
