This plant was used as grafting stock for Crested Euphorbia. It had two side shoots growing out last year and I cut them off and planted them up by themselves.
This year they grew like weeds. Now over 12" high. Don't know what to do when they get to 6 ft.

Twisting columnar branching succulent basically spineless. Leafs out in the late summer/ fall. More commonly sold as crests that tend to stay leafier longer. Originally from India but has good cold tolerance considering its relatively tropical source. Most commonly available in its crested form, but normal forms are ornamental as well and good landscaping Euphorbias for smaller gardens.
