African Milk Tree
Euphorbia trigona 'Rubra'
Our favourite not-actually-a-cactus cactus. The Euphorbia trigona, or African Milk Tree, is a succulent grown in Central and Southern Africa. Its thick stems are lined with small spikes and overhanging leaves, in a deep maroon colour.
The Rubra variety is known for its contrasting deep green stems and red leaves. The colour contrast makes it a beautiful feature plant to have all year round and a nice nod to Christmas.
As a succulent, this plant will need very little watering, especially during winter, and likes a bright spot.
