The Crown of Thorns, specifically the orange/red variety of Euphorbia milii, is a particularly vibrant and attractive cultivar of this popular succulent plant. Native to Madagascar, it's cherished for its striking appearance, characterized by bright, orange to red bracts that add a splash of vivid color to the plant.

This variety typically grows to about 1 to 3 feet in height and spreads 1 to 2 feet. It has thick, fleshy stems covered with sharp, protruding spines. The leaves are small, green, and oval-shaped, although they may drop off in less than ideal conditions.

The most visually striking aspect of the orange/red Crown of Thorns is its bracts, which are brightly colored in shades of orange to red. These colorful bracts surround the small, true flowers of the plant, creating a long-lasting and showy display. The bracts can appear throughout the year, with peak blooming often occurring in brighter light conditions.

Euphorbia milii prefers full sun to partial shade and thrives in well-draining soil. It is a drought-tolerant plant, requiring minimal watering. Overwatering should be avoided, as it can lead to root rot.

In cultivation, the orange/red Crown of Thorns is a popular choice for rock gardens, cactus gardens, and as a container plant, thanks to its vibrant color and unique appearance. It can add an exotic touch to both indoor and outdoor settings.

Overall, the orange/red Crown of Thorns is a low-maintenance and visually striking plant, perfect for adding a pop of color and interest to any garden or home. Its bright bracts, combined with its spiny, architectural form, make it a favorite among succulent enthusiasts and gardeners looking for a drought-tolerant yet decorative plant.
