Euphorbia tirucalli is a large succulent tree or shrub, popular in desert gardens around the world, including our courtyard! Although normally green, the orange/red form known as Firesticks is the most popular, turning vibrant orange in winter. 🧡 In colder climates the colour is almost luminous. Protect from extended frost.
Maintenance for this plant is virtually zero. Once established they can survive on natural rainfall. The require no pruning except for occasional trimming of outliers. Alternatively they can be cut back hard each season to keep them small. Be very cautious of the sap when pruning! This plant is well suited to acreage as a wind break or screening plant. #courtyard #barringtonriverorganicfarm
