|Euphorbia tirucalli firesticks is a native of South Africa. "Firesticks" is a red form. They have the most color fall through spring when they become inflamed with brilliant pinkish red in the cooler winter months. Their growth period is in the late spring and summer months. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch during active growing season. They need bright light to full sun to look their best. They need rest in winter so cut back on watering. Protect from frost. Remember, all Euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to the skin and eyes. Wash hands immediately in soap and water if contact is made with the sap. Avoid touching face and eyes while handling Euphorbias.Euphorbia tirucalli - Fire sticks are a slower growing variety of Euphorbia tirucalli. I have a euphorbia tirucalli (not firesticks) which is about 8’ high and 3-4’ wide. Take cuttings in March and have rooted plants by May. They fade in summer and become redder in winter.|
