I found some old 35mm pics. There are things in my other photo’s I totally forgot I ever had them. Or what happened to some.
In the before the E.trigona is in a pot on the plant deck. Now,its on the ground and tall.
I want to change up the front next year- add more color.

I like the E.trigona. Is it in danger of getting top heavy?

Great stuff! How does the Euphorbia stand up to wind - do you get hurricanes?

Thanks to all of you.

The vine is a Purple Trumpet Vine- Clytostoma. When I had that old fence replaced...I came home and the guy didn't just cut the top over the fence- what I thought he would do- he cut the vine right to the ground. Its struggled ever since. My wife once not knowing it was an ornamental also cut it back to the ground as it tried to comeback years later.

It only blooms once a year for a few short weeks- 2 or maybe 3. After that,its at best scattered.

That Euphorbia is still in that same old claw tub. I had forgotten that it was bone white when I bought it. I don't know what the trigger is for it to yellow. Some stay white.
I have bricks under the tub to stop any sway. But other then that ,I guess its possible one day it could snap. At least the bay breeze and winds is almost always towards the house (west to east winds). My car is safe.
I tell myself.

Long may it remain so.
