Devil's backbone

Euphorbia tithymaloides


Pink flowers that were "stuck" together on a disk like platform. Some were open at the end and some fuchsia like plumes came out. The plant itself looked succulent like. What is it? The individual flowers were about 1 cm long.


High on a karst mountain. Chaehom area. Thailand.


These were growing near a temple high on a mountain. I am not sure whether they are wild or "cultured"

Can anyone re-look at this spotting please. When downloading on mobile I can not choose which is the front picture so it kind of disappeared.
