I was wondering if you were looking for more information about cultivating this Himalayan plant (besides Bhutan, they mention Tibet and south west China):

There is not much information over more generalised sources:

There are many different species of the genus Euphorbia, like the popular poinsettia, for instance, or:

I like the name Heather, which always reminded me of romantic moorlands. By the way, a friend here will certainly appreciate your choice; it is the national flower of Norway!

I didn't see this until now. Beautiful :-)
