Euphorbia trigona 'Rubra'

African Milk Tree / Candelabra Cactus

Bloom Period: 



Moderate Indirect (Medium)


Let Soil Dry Out (Moderate Moisture)


Height 24 – 48”  Width 12 – 18”





Extremely upright, branching spires of thick, deep red, succulent stems are decorated with fluttery little leaves that grow along the serrated, triangled edges each between two thorns. While each plant will form its own unique shape, all will retain a somewhat columnar form.

Virtually indestructible, Euphorbia plants are easy to care for on a warm, sunny windowsill and can be moved outside for the warm summer months. Make sure the pot drains completely after watering and allow it to dry out before watering again. When cut, all Euphorbia plants exude a caustic white latex which is a skin and eye irritant as well as poisonous, so use caution when pruning or cleaning.
