Interesting small clumping thick, columnar spiney (single, thick short spines at the base of each leaf scar) Euphorbia with small, lime yellow-green flowers in spring and large, strking, succulent prominently veined leaves in summer near top of each column. Don't know hardiness or height. Seems to vary quite a bit in leaf shape, size and spininess as several different looking plants have been labeled as this in cactus shows.
