African Milk Tree

Euphorbia trigona 'Rubra'

Regular price £35.00 £0.00

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.

Growing pot size: 17cm

Overall plant height including growing pot: 50-70cm

Pets: Harmful to pets.

Euphorbia sap contains highly toxic latex, so make sure to wash your hands immediately, if you come into contact with it.
