Where it grows
The natural form of this plant is native to the southern Cape and Little Karoo regions of South Africa. The variegated form is generally only seen in cultivation.
This long-stemmed Euphorbia has intense white variegation flecked with some green spots of chlorophyll. If given enough light, it turns a bright pink colour. It is covered in long, sharp spines at the top of each stem at maturity. They grow multiple stems and form an attractive cluster in time.
These plants can handle full sun and will turn a bright pink stress colour if exposed for long enough. They are not fussy plants, but need a well drained soil mix to prevent rotting issues. Water well throughout the year, but keep dry in winter.
Spring and summer.
