(African Milk Barrel)

Modern designers love the silver metallic sheen of this unusual, rock hard succulent, which is also a favorite of collectors. It is native to very steep rocky terrain in coastal South Africa where plants often nestle into boulders to tap moisture protected underground. What makes this plant so fabulous is its silvery coloring, which remains consistent year around. Its spherical form with many angled edges resembles a true cactus, bearing modest black or gray thorns the length of a thumbnail. The...

(Canchalagua, Hypericum-leaved Spurge, Leche-leche)

A native to tropical areas in Mexico, Central America and South America, hypericum-leaved spurge is a small roadside and field weed and has recently been cultivated as a garden bedding plant. It is a small, upright, airy spurge that produces small, lacy white flowers when growing conditions are warm. It is a frost tender annual that may survive as a short-lived perennial in winter-free zones. Cultivated varieties have larger flowers than wild-type and denser, bushier habits. They are low-growing...

(Cactus Spurge, Candelabra Tree)

Named for its rounded crown of elaborately branched stems, candelabra tree is a bold, architectural plant for landscapes in arid, frost-free regions. This large, tree-sized succulent superficially resembles a cactus, but is not actually related. It is native to the warm, dry grasslands of southern Africa.

Candelabra tree bears needle-like barbs which are borne on vertical ridges that divide its thick, upright branches into four or five segments. Small, yellow-green flowers appear at the ends...

(Candelabra Plant, Elkhorn)

Hailing from the arid regions of India and Sri Lanka, Euphorbia lactea is a highly cultivated, cactus-like succulent that has become naturalized in tropical and subtropical regions across the globe. When grown in frost-free zones it reaches shrub or tree-sized proportions. Though nearly leafless, its spiny, evergreen stems look attractive all season long. As a landscape specimen, elkhorn offers tough, substantial beauty in addition to fast, relatively maintenance free growth. In zones with...

(Candelabra Plant, Crested Candelabra Plant, Crested Elkhorn)

The wavy, crested stems of this cactus-like succulent offer an interesting appeal to containers and desert landscapes. The stems are green with ivory or yellow markings and the crests are lined with rows of small spines. This naturally occurring mutant does not reach the great heights of wild-type Euphorbia lactea but remains compact and manageable. Small, inconspicuous, greenish flowers also appear near spines throughout the year and are followed by equally small fruits that produce viable...

(Little Christmas Flower, Snow Flake, White Lace Euphorbia)

"Sweet like honey" describes the scent of the tiny flowers of the little Christmas flower in late fall and early winter. A frost-tender evergreen shrub native to Mexico and Central America, it looks like an oval snowball when in bloom. As with other members of the spurge family, a milky sap exudes from broken leaves or stems.

The leaves are narrow ovals and are medium green with a hint of blue-green. A leaf underside is lighter green. In late fall the branch tips bear many tiny fragrant flowers...

(Crown-of-Thorns)

This thorny plant has some of the showiest flowers of all the Euphorbias. A native of Madagascar, crown-of-thorns is a tropical, succulent shrub that stays evergreen year-round where hardy. From spring to late summer it produces many flowers with two showy bracts that are most typically scarlet red. Cultivars with orange, pink, white or creamy yellow bracts are also available.

Highly drought tolerant, this tough tropical requires full sun and can tolerate average to poor soil with good drainage....

(Crown-of-Thorns, Short and Sweet Crown-of-Thorns)

This patented cultivar originated from seedlings of Euphorbia milii ‘Tricolor’. The species is a thorny, succulent, semi-evergreen shrub native to Madagascar, commonly known as crown of thorns.

‘Short and Sweet’ forms a compact, rounded dome of thick, glossy, spoon-shaped leaves borne on branched, thorny stems. Its brilliant blooms are displayed...
