Introducing the captivating Euphorbia Milii 'Rosy', commonly known as the 'Rosy' Crown of Thorns. This unique succulent plant is native to Madagascar and is renowned for its slender, thorny stems crowned with clusters of vibrant rosy-pink flowers, juxtaposed against its deep green leaves.

How to Grow

The 'Rosy' Crown of Thorns flourishes in bright, direct sunlight, making it perfect for sunny windowsills or terraces. It prefers a well-draining soil mix, such as a cactus or succulent mix. This drought-tolerant plant is best suited for USDA zones 9-11 and thrives in warmer climates.

Care Tips

Water the plant sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between watering sessions to prevent root rot. Being a succulent, it stores water in its stems and requires less frequent watering than most plants. During its dormant winter period, reduce watering even further.


With its contrasting thorns and beautiful blooms, Euphorbia Milii 'Rosy' makes a striking statement in rock gardens, succulent arrangements, or as a standalone potted plant. Its resilience and vibrant flowers make it a favored choice for both beginners and seasoned plant enthusiasts.

Planting Tips

When potting, ensure the container has adequate drainage holes. Using a cactus or succulent mix will provide the ideal soil structure. If planting outdoors, ensure it's placed in a location where it can receive plenty of sunlight and is shielded from prolonged wet conditions.


Trim away any yellow or withered leaves to maintain its aesthetics and promote healthy growth. Use caution when handling due to its sharp thorns. Wear gloves to protect your hands during maintenance tasks.

Pests and Diseases

Keep an eye out for pests like spider mites or aphids. These can be managed with insecticidal soaps or neem oil. Ensuring proper soil drainage and avoiding over-watering will help prevent fungal issues or root rot.

Note: Euphorbia Milii 'Rosy' contains a milky sap that can be irritating to the skin and eyes. It's essential to handle it with care and keep it away from children and pets.
