|Euphorbia bupleurifolia, native to South Africa, is a caudiciform Euphorbia that develops a fat caudex topped with a tuft of long leaves. Stem has spirally arranged tubercles that are reminiscent of a pineapple with long slender leaves at the growing tip. Offsets freely to form large clusters. Responds well to warmth, with its active growth period in the late spring and summer months. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch during the active growing season. Requires bright light for best appearance, and should be given a winter resting period at which time less water should be given. Protect from frost. All Euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to eyes and mucous membranes. If contact is made with this white sap, take care to not touch face or eyes before washing hands with soap and water. Brown pineapple shaped, pinecone like, has bright green leaves about 6" with yellow/green flowers. Trunk grows to about 2-3" |
