Euphorbia royleana


This Euphorbia from the Indian foothills of the Himalayas shows the large leaves on the new growth. The leaves will drop as the plant ages leaving the very attractive spine shield down each rib. We have been growing one of these in our extreme Arizona sun for several years and it has become a superb specimen. It took minor damage to the tips when our temps dropped to the low teens in 2007 but has grown right past that event and looks even better today. It tends to make a compact bush with all of the arms reaching about the same height. Like all Euphorbs the blooms are small with yellow/green bracts but the overall effect with hundreds of them is pretty cool. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, this is one you should add to your collection.

10 – 12 inch singles.
