Bought a while ago and sat on my kitchen windowsill.
Euphorbia milii, Crown of Thorns?
If not E. milii, one of its hybrids....
Genus is right....
E. trigona, then?
Or maybe E. ammak....
Genus AND species correct. Just a little bit more needed
Argh! Is it a cultivar or a subspecies?
Cultivar, colour based
E. trigona 'Rubra' then?
The cigar is yours! Not sure if it should be var 'Rubra' or simply 'Rubra'
If it's a cultivar, it's technically cv 'Rubra' although generally the cv part is omitted.
Yeee! I actually won one!
Var. is a botanical designation never used with a cultivar name. I think use of abbreviation cv. is now supposed to be discontinued.
