15 Seeds w/Instructions

The South African Euphorbia cooperi is a spiny, succulent tree 10-20 ft tall, with conspicuous candelabra-like branches. The branches do not split again, unlike the common tree Euphorbia. Branches are bright green or yellow-green even thought times of drought, conspicuously 4 to 6 winged with characteristic narrowing and widening and rounded tops like those on a some Mid-eastern building or a chunky string of beads. The triangular or heart-shaped segments are 50-150 x 120 mm. Leaves and flowers are very small and produce a 3-lobed berry-like capsule when mature. When mature, they burst open, flinging individual seeds several feel away.
It is an easy species to grow that is suited for any well drained soil in full sun. But young plant are happy growing indoors. The latex/sap is toxic and irritant - it can blind, and even standing close to a wounded tree can cause bronchial inflammation. It was traditionally used for fishing; grass soaked in in the latex and flung into a river is enough to paralyze the fish and send them floating to the surface, making it possible to catch them by hand.
Very drought resistant but susceptible to frost.
