Desert Candle Cactus
Desert Candle or Cowboy catus (Euphorbias)
Europhobias are very well suited to south coast and Sydney climate- as long as soil is well-drained it will grow happily in a harsh windy environment, even on a balcony or inside a well lit house.
Candle cactus are a fantastic potted specimen, will survive extreme neglect, has very deep dark green, upright, neat and elegant form. A lot of the Euphorbias are extremely easy to look after and will soon make a regular appearance when water restrictions kick in!
*Some people react to the milky sap (when the plant is damaged) so gloves should be worn and avoid eye contact at all times.
