A rugged succulent popular as a houseplant. The foliage is a beautiful shade of green all year but transitions to yellow, orange or red in the cooler months. Leaves are inconspicuous and fall off soon after appearing, leaving a ‘scar’ on the plant which adds to its character, as does the grey, highly textured bark. In bloom, little clusters of yellow flowers attract bees and butterflies.
A hugely versatile plant with many uses in contemporary interior design, whether as a container plant indoors or outdoors or grown as a landscape plant for visual interest in the garden. Common names include: Pencil Tree, Rubber-hedge Euphorbia, Indiantree spurge, Firestick Cactus, Pencil Cactus, Sticks on fire, Finger Tree, Naked lady, Red Pencil tree, Milk bush, ET
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.
