It is quite common in Cuba to see the exotic plant of the Mottled Spurge used to fence farms and even yards in cities and towns, as it happens in the inland municipality of Calixto Garcia, in the northeastern province of Holguin.
But something unusual about this plant is watching its flowers; rare but gorgeous, why not.
Local phtographer Lixander Cruz took some pictures of the flowers of the Mottled Spurge growing at the dairy 11, of the Antero Regalado cooperative farm, not far from Buenaventura, the municipal headtown.
Cuban encyclopaedia Ecured says this plant is native to tropical Asia, mainly in India, but that was brought to Cuba many years now, and that its scientific name is Euphorbia lactea Haw. / By Antonio Guerra Carralero - Radio Juvenil / Translated by Radio Angulo.
