Euphorbia abdelkuri


A Somali mariner who spent time marooned on Abd-al-Kuri island famously dubbed it “a hellish place where time stands still”. Very few humans in modern recorded history have visited the island due to its treacherous rocky coastline and equally treacherous ocean currents. Also, these waters are patrolled by pirates. 

All known Euphorbia abdelkuri specimens in cultivation are rooted cuttings from an original parent plant collected by our friend, the late John Lavranos, in the 1960s.

Plant is 5 inches tall.

Plants are individually boxed, pot/soil not included
