African Milk Tree

Euphorbia trigona 'Rubra'

Regular price £36.00 £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 we have for sale 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 diameter; 15.5cm height

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

Excludes decorative pot.
