African Milk Tree
Euphorbia Trigona Rubra
Euphorbia Trigona Rubra is such a fascinating succulent!
It is an incredibly good looking plant and makes an incredible addition to any collection. It's a real show stopper and a great talking point. It's also really easy to care for, which obviously makes it seriously Lazy Flora approved!
Under the right conditions, it can grow to between 1-2m, which just adds to its show-stopping quality. Its upright stems and ridges of short-lived leaves and thorns are gorgeous (but best kept away from children and pets). But don't let those leaves fool you - Euphorbia Trigona is actually a cactus and is also known as the African milk tree because of the milky sap contained in the stem.
Please be aware that this plant has sap that is toxic to humans therefore it should always be handled with gloves, and wash hands if it comes into contact with skin. Keep well away from children and pets.
The colour of this plant varies from plant to plant therefore the images represent an indication rather than a guarantee of the colour.
