Euphorbia ingens
The Euphorbia ingens, commonly called the candelabra tree, is a succulent tree that's native to South Africa. This tropical succulent can reach up to 30 feet tall in the wild, with erect branches that are four-angled with wavy ridges and paired spines. Enjoying a subtropical savannah environment, the Euphorbia ingens cannot tolerate temperatures below 50 to 54 degrees F, making it appropriate for indoor or greenhouse growing in most climates. The candelabra tree blooms from April until July with yellowish-green, clustered flowers that have winged petals, followed by round, smooth, reddish fruits in August through October.

Euphorbia horrida
The hybrids of  E. horrida  are very common in the trade and in the collections. This hybrids involves several different species (often resulted from  accidental crosses) and are widely propagated for their quality. They are a very strong and easy to grow spiny succulent  that looks a lot like an American cactus and will readily form large clumps. They is extremely variable due to their hybrid origin and have many varieties and forms. Many of the plants sold as E. horrida are actuality hybrids. It is however very difficult to identify the species involved in this crosses and is hard to tell apart the exact ancestors only by body characteristics.

Aloe hercules
Aloe 'Hercules' (Hercules Aloe) A large hybrid tree aloe that is the result of a cross between the large Tree Aloe, Aloe barberae (A. bainesii) and the smaller Quiver Tree, Aloe dichotoma. The plant exhibits hybrid vigor, growing faster than Aloe barberae with a heavier trunk, thicker branches and peeling bark more typical of Aloe dichotoma but with broad triangular dark green leaves. Relatively young large specimens can be seen in southern California and it seems likely that they will grow to 30 to 40 feet. We have yet to see this plant flower but Kevin Coniff sent us pictures showing beautiful green-tipped salmon flowers that he notes can appear sporadically from spring to fall.  LIGHTING REQUIREMENTSWinter Hardiness: 20-25° F CARE INSTRUCTIONSCategory: Succulent Family: Aloeaceae (Aloes) Origin: South Africa (Africa) Evergreen: Yes Flower Color: Salmon Bloomtime: Spring/Fall Height: 25-40 feet Width: 15-20 feet Exposure: Shade

Euphorbia trigona
Also known as African milk bush, friendship cactus and candelabra cactus, Euphorbia trigona is not a tree, bush or cactus. While the succulent African milk tree grows successfully in United States Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 8 and 9 with winter protection, it thrives best in zones 10 through 12. The sun-worshipping African milk tree is native to western Africa and won’t tolerate freezing. Among the lowest-maintenance of ornamentals, this plant’s exotic beauty and imposing form belie its undemanding attitude and disdain for pampering.

Euphorbia tirucalli (Red Pencil Tree, Pencil cactus)
This very striking succulent shrub is a form of Euphorbia tirucalli, a plant that eventually can grow to 25 feet tall by 8 to 10 feet wide. 'Sticks on Fire' lacks the chlorophyll of the parent plant and, as such, is much slower growing and probably will never obtain the same size. We guess a reasonable size for 'Sticks on Fire' to reach is 4-8 feet but with time perhaps taller. The many branches on this interesting tree are as thin as pencils and a reddish-golden color with small leaves that are inconspicuous and soon drop. The color tends to fade closer to yellow in the summer, and becomes redder in the winter and color is always best when grown in full sun. It is drought tolerant but reliably cold hardy not much below 30 degrees F, depending on the duration. Be careful when handling this plant as the stems break easily and the milky sap can burn the skin if one is sensitive to it and certainly is not something to get into the eyes.
