is that some kind of cactus?

Brenda said...

Very cool!

Tanya said...

The greenhouse owner said she inherited it from her mother, and that it is a desert plant, supposedly from the holy land. It was very woody and quite the monster. She said she isn't sure how she is going to accomplish moving that thing when and if the need ever arises!

You are so sweet Tanya! Thank you for your lovely comments on my party blog.

To answer your question...I just googles "witch tea pictures" & the picture of the older women dressed like witches comes up. I printed it out, mounted it to scrapbook paper & put it in an old black frame I had. Easy & free!

The Witch Tea Party was so much fun. I am still getting asked about next years!

Faith said...

Wow, I've never seen anything like it! Very cool!

This is actually a form of Euphorbia, not a true cactus. If it were a true cactus it would be a little more frost-tolerant and then the one on our front hill wouldn't have turned to mush a few winters ago. :-(

This plant is not to be confused with an ocotillo.

Just googled ocotillo... yes, this plant is definitely not one of those. This was much more woody. Sorry you lost your 'euphorbia'. It's quite an interesting plant. Thanks for the added info!
