Sticks on Fire Pencil Tree

Common name: Sticks on Fire Pencil Tree
Botanical name: Euphorbia tirucalli

In frost free areas, Euphorbia can become a 30' tree but in colder areas, it is often knocked back by frost. It can be single or multiple trunked. It has green cylindrical branches that are about the diameter of a pencil. Leaves are not usually present. Some people are allergic to the sap. It is tolerant of salt, full sun, part shade and quite drought resistant. It is a great accent plant for a container. This form has light green branches if in full sun.

Water Saving Tip:

Mulching and adding compost to soil can minimize evaporation and help soil absorb and store water.
