    Euphorbia cereiformis
     
    Euphorbia cereiformis, native to Africa, forms club-shaped stems to 4" in diameter with up to 15 ribs and dense, gnarly persistent peduncles (residual dead flower stalks, etc.) to 1/2" in length. New growth is burgundy in color. Produces many offsets, and grows to several feet in height. All Euphorbias contain a white sap that can be irritating to eyes and mucous membranes. 
     
    If contact is made with this white sap, take care to not touch face or eyes before washing hands with soap and water. Responds well to warmth, with its active growth period in the late spring and summer months. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Requires bright light for best appearance, and should be given a winter resting period at which time less water should be given. Protect from frost.
     
    Succulent plant is spiny, much-branched, in the specimens seen forming a small bushy mass 4–8 in. high, perhaps ultimately making a dense clump; branches (excluding the spines) 2/3–1 in. thick, erect, 7–10-angled, with grooves about 2 lin. deep between the angles, glabrous, deep green, without markings and not glaucous; angles subacute, slightly and obtusely toothed, with transverse impressed lines 1 1/2–2 lin. apart, between the teeth, scarcely distinguishable in dried specimens; leaves rudimentary, soon deciduous, about 1 1/2 lin. long, and 1/2 lin. broad, linear-lanceolate, very acute, spreading, glabrous, green, reddish at the margins and tips; spines (abortive peduncles) solitary between the teeth along the angles, 5–10 in. long, slender, pale brown, bearing 3–4 minute leaves or bracts scattered along the upper part; flowering peduncles 1 1/2–2 lin. long, glabrous, purple, with 5–6 oblong acute or obtuse apiculate glabrous minutely ciliate purple bracts 1–1 1/2 lin. long; involucre solitary, 2 1/2 lin. in diam., obconic-campanulate, glabrous below, minutely puberulous at the upper part, dark purple, with 5 glands and 5 transversely oblong toothed puberulous lobes; glands contiguous, spreading, 1–1 1/3 lin. in their greater diam., transversely oblong, entire, minutely pitted-rugulose on the upper surface. null
