Despite the thorns, this plant does have leaves and so is a succulent, not a cactus. It is hardy and can grow to be up to two metres tall, with many individual branches and makes a stunning addition to any garden.
The sap of this plant is white, hence the common name of milk tree; but is poisonous, so keep skin and eyes protected when working with this plant.
Prefers full sun, but can tolerate a little shade.
Like all succulents it requires free draining soil and little water.
All succulents are sent bare rooted (most of the soil removed) by Express Australia Post at the start of each week. You will receive a shipping email for tracking if you provide us with your email address.
