Euphorbia 'Royal red'
Euphorbia trigona rubra 'Royal red'
Common names: Spurge, African Milk Tree
There are more than 2000 varieties of plants that fall under the umbrella of Euphorbia, ranging dramatically in shape, texture, and size. It's important to note that what links them is a toxic sap that will cause irritation to both pets and people, so be careful so you can best enjoy this beautiful genus! The 'Rubra' looks like a cactus, but is actually a succulent and is seriously dramatic with its magenta-flushed, spiky skin.
Water: Drought Tolerant
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet Friendly: No
Care: Your Euphorbia will need very little watering in the winter while it is dormant, and more frequent watering (potentially weekly) in the summer during its growing period.
