Even the crested variety still will typically produce some of the characteristics of it’s non crested form – a central conical or cylindrical caudex with many tentacle-like branches (hence the common name Medusa’s Head) and soft, narrow, deep green stems with very long leaves
Flowers: Yellow-green flower clusters. This euphorbia is not known for it’s flowers, they are insignificant and almost go unnoticed. This succulent is more known for its structure.
Size: 15cm tall and 30cm wide.
Growing Season: Summer
Origin: While the Euphorbia family stem from Africa, this cultivar is of garden origin.
Positioning: It has been bred to be easy to grow and is suited to a range of light and sun conditions. Will thrive in a full sun position.
Care Instructions: Euphorbia’s require a well draining soil as they do not tollerate sitting in wet for prolonged periods of time. Allow the soil to completely dry out between thorough watering.
