What is Euphorbia milii

Euphorbia milii, Corona de Cristo, crown of thorns, Christ plant, or Christ thorn (scientific name: Euphorbia milii) is a drought-tolerant, non-cold-tolerant evergreen shrub in the family Euphorbiaceae native to Madagascar. The stems are densely covered with sharp brown spines. The round, flower-like structures are bracts. As they are bracts, they are more vigorous than the petals and have a long flowering period (spring to winter) as red flowers. The flowering season as a red flower is long from spring to winter. The white milky liquid that comes out when the branches are cut is toxic.
