Crown of thorn plant

Zone 28734 | VeraF added on November 7, 2015 | Answered

I have a big (3 1/2 foot tall) crown of thorn plant. Can I plant other low growing plants at the base of it? And if yes, which ones? Or maybe they do not like competition. It looks empty at the base of the plant. Thank you for your answer Heidi

I would recommend not planting something else in the base of the plant.
Perhaps using moss or some colorful rocks would dress up the bare soil.
Make sure it doesn't cover the soil so densely that it inhibits watering and air circulation to the soil.
