I am looking to buy a bunch of the crown of thorns. I live in Melbourne Beach and I'm looking for a good place to buy them that is somewhat close to me. Any recommendations?

they are easy to start with cuttings if you want to skip buying them. However, there is that nursery on north side of Eau Gallie BLVd, west of A1a about 100 yards. I haven't been in there in awhile but remember seeing different variety. Call ahead.

Thx for the advice. What do you find is the best way to start them from cuttings? Do I need to use a fertilizer, etc.?

Basically, just cut a stem, let the cut heal (a day or two). Then put in any pot, or stick it in the ground where you want them. They are maintenance free. Don't fertilize until a year later and if they are starting to thrive.

They need full sun for best flowering.
