Euphorbia tirucalli var.rosea

Sticks on Fire
Euphorbia is such a curious genus providing us with plants with many types of distinctive foliage or almost none at all. This S. African species, commonly called Sticks on Fire, has pencil thin succulent upright branches which produces very few leaves, and when leaves are produced that are tiny. When temperatures become cool the yellow green stems take on fiery tones, thus the common name. Plants can reach 6-8' where they are hardy, but if grown in containers can be kept any size you want by pinching back. Not especially fast growing, but a lot of fun! Shipping 4" pots.
