  • Special notes:  
    Euphorbia anoplia is a small clumping stemless succulent that resembles a spineless cactus. It forms a colony of leafless ribbed columns. The columns are usually somewhat variegated from whitish green to green. The plant has small dark burgundy flowers at the column tips. Although it is fairly hardy, for best appearance E. anoplia should be protected from frost as it can scar or discolor the stems. This plant contains white sap which is irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes. If you get the sap on your hands, be careful not to touch your face or eyes before thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water.
