Nice, neat small, attractive clumping columnar Euphorbia from S AFrica. A bit frost tender here in So Cal in zones 9b or colder, but can do OK outdoors in 10a and up, or near the coast but up in elevation a bit. Moderate growth rate. Tends to get confused with E polygona or horrida, but has NO spines at all, and always a bit on the variegated side (has light and dark bands). Flowers dark purple and look a lot like E polygona flowers... E polygona usually has some spines, though.
Now that this plant has lived through a severe freeze (severe for us southern Californians) where many aloes and other Euphorbias got severely damaged, this plant was completely untouched, even the fully exposed clump. So I think it's a solid 9b plant at this point- no problems with 26F for extended length of time. Not even a blemish.
