Saw one growing in habitat in Shaba N.P., Kenya in dry bush.The plant (tree) was approximately 30 ft. tall, and perhaps 25 ft. in width with hundreds of cascading green limbs, stunning!

Neutral palmbob On Mar 31, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This plant is from Kenya, and I have no idea how tall it gets. Is a twisted and spiny, angular, columnar Euphorbia that grows to at least 4' tall (size of specimen I saw in botanic garden). Rare in cultivation and not very cold hardy, but hardy enough to be grown as an outdoor plant in southern California zone 10a... just gets 'cut back to size' every so often after unusually cold periods.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Spring Valley, California
