Crown of thorns or Christ plant

Legend has it that the Crown of thorns worn by Christ was formed by the stems of this plant. It is a plant with red flowers and thorny stems, with a mildly poisonous sap that acts as an irritant when it comes in contact with the skin. A beautiful flowering shrub, it has flowers in different colours, formed by two petals.
