Bonsai Boy's Flowering Crown of Thorns Bonsai TreeThe Crown of Thorns is a spiny, succulent bonsai that flowers nearly all year. The common name alludes to the legend that the euphorbi milii worn by Christ at the time of his crucifixion was made from stems of this plant. The red / Salmon flowers are small and the brightly colored modified leaves (bracts) found just beneath the flowers are quite attractive. Very easly indoor care. Requires water only weekly.
Also called Australian Brush Cherry. Has small handsome evergreen leaves (great for bonsai) which are firm and glossy and the flowers are puffy white. If it receives enough light, the leaves will develop red highlights.
