Candelabra Euphorbia

Euphorbia cooperi

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Description

A succulent tree-like shrub native to South Africa where it can reach massive heights, but is cultivated for use as an ornamental in succulent gardens or rock gardens. Its swollen looking branches are divided into triangular shaped segments and grow upwards and outwards resembling a huge candelabra. It has no visible leaves, or very inconspicuous ones, and its single trunk stem has a grey-brown, gnarled look. Branches can be bright green or yellowish green, while flowers are yellow-green clusters.

This is a very low maintenance and easy to grow plant, suited to any soil in full sun, but needs moist, well-drained soil. When growing indoors, water during summer but leave dry in winter. Like all euphorbias, it has a sap which is an irritant to humans and animals, and is used by locals to stupefy fish for easy catching.

NOTE: Euphorbia’s are for ornamental purposes only. The milky sap can be toxic and can cause adverse reactions if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. Do not ingest. Euphorbias do not typically require pruning or maintenance, but take care when handling.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.

PACKING

All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.

GENERAL INFOMRATION

Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.
