Euphorbia wilsonii, Donovan Stewart Correll, 1980.
Euphorbia infossa Hort.
This little member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given
this name by Vítězslav Vlk in 1997.
It is found in Ethiopia, growing in a well drained soil with some
water and some sun. The caudex can grow to three centimetres, the
plant only to five centimetres with inflorescence reaching eight
centimetres with a single white to pale pink flower.
The genera name; Euphorbia
dates back to the first century BC, where King Juba II of
Mauritania used it in a reference to his doctor, Euphorbos, and that
name was kept as a generic name by Carl von Linnaeus. The species
name after Charles Wilson, succulent plant enthusiast in Pretoria.
