From south western Madagascar and Described in 1911 by Nicholas Edward Brown as being in the Euphorbiaceae family.
A dry tropical or subtropical growing environment is ideal. The fascinating caudex makes it a delight, especially when raised decoratively for bonsai.
Storing nutrients, this bushy geophyte has fleshy green sword shaped leaves on grey, dense, and spineless branches. It is also dioecious (single sex).
Used in xeriscaping, it grows 1-8 feet tall in partial shade or sun and is drought tolerant. Flowers are yellow to pink. Young seedlings form knots as the caudex grows but can also form a large spherical caudex.
Available in 4 inch pots.
