Euphorbia ammak ‘Variegata’

2010

Euphorbia ammak ‘Variegata’

Ghost Euphorbia

Highlight Month:


Nativity:

Arabian Peninsula

Growth Habit:

Euphorbia ammak is also known as the African candelabra euphorbia (in spite of not growing on the African mainland), which accurately describes its growth as a central trunk with multiple branches. It can attain heights of 30 feet in its natural habitat.

Growing Requirements:

As with all succulent euphorbias, the Ghost Euphorbia requires well-drained soil and full sun. This variegated form can tolerate some shade. Minimal water needs make it suitable for drier climates, but it can be successfully grown in a pot and protected from rain in wetter areas.

Features:

The variegation in this form is extreme, giving the whole plant a ghostly pallor.

Where at Lotusland:
