Very common landscape plant in So Cal and very easy to grow, too... takes a lot of water, or drought tolerant (though tends to become deciduous if not given enough water). Also has some of the nicest flowers in the Euphorbia world- profuse and relatively large bright yellow-green flowers. Has a small stem about 2-4' and then a bunch of succulent branches ending in a 360 degree array of pale green leaves. This Euphorbia often spontaneously crests, much more commonly than to most other Euphorbias. Crests get quite large, but often have a limited life span, sort of outgrowing their water/nutrient supply and then slowy rotting back. Native of the Canary Islands
