Fire Sticks

Euphorbia tirucalli rosea

$ 8.00

Description

This fiery-looking Euphorbia is a stunning evergreen succulent shrub which forms a thicket of vivid, loosely branching vertical stems which has been said to resemble sea coral. An evergreen growing up to 2.5m tall and wide, it produces showy flowers but its most attractive feature is its many thin stems which are reddish-gold at tips and will change colour depending on the season, from yellow to red.

Used in landscaping to add dramatic colour bursts and height to beds and borders, it is also successful in containers. A very resilient plant, it is easy to grow. Quite self sufficient once established, well-draining soil and plenty of sunshine. Euphorbias are typically native to tropical and subtropical Africa and Madagascar, but this particular one is a nursery-produced cultivar.

Note: All parts of the plant are toxic if ingested and sap can be an irritant. Commonly called Fire Sticks, Sticks on Fire, Sticks of Fire and Red Pencil Tree.

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.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
