Milky White Sap and Bright Red Explosive Seed Pods


What more could you want out of a plant, anyway?

Euphorbia leucodendron

These green sticks with tiny green leaves are very similar to the more common Pencil Cactus, Euphorbia tirucallii which also are sometimes known as Firesticks when they have red tips. Anyway, this species, not that other one, is hardy outside in the Bay Area. So we like it. And you do too. But just don’t get any of that milky white sap, i.e. poison, on your lips or in your eyes. It will hurt like the dickens. Hospital visits may ensue. Some crying, some burning.
