OUTDOOR PLANT - Euphorbia Tirucalli - Firesticks in 20cm pot
Our large collection of Euphorbias consistently tend to be one of our most popular range of plants. Loved for their quirky characteristics and ability to make a bold statement in any home.
Euphorbia includes over 2000 species of annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees and includes spiny cactus and showy perennials and includes this leggy beauty that we can never keep on our shelves longer than a few days as they are incredibly popular!
Euphorbias are the most incredible family. They look nothing like each other and their diversity is amazing!
Euphorbia Tirucalli is appropriately referred to as 'Firesticks' and it doesn't take a genius to see why! When exposed to full sun, or for periods in deep winter, the sometimes green stems will transform into vibrant orange and red colours...almost like they are about to burst into flames! They make a true show stopper in a pot by your front door or planted directly into your landscaping.
Firesticks originate from Madagascar and subtropical Africa but survive very well in Victoria coast gardens.
Euphorbia ‘Firesticks’ is tolerant of drought, salt and dry winds but try and protect from consistent frosts. Prefers a hot, dry location in very well drained soil.
Water only sparingly if in a pot, if planted in the ground no water other than rainfall is required.
WE RECOMMEND PLANTING IN...
Euphorbia need to be planted into very well-draining soil where their roots will not sit for long in moisture as they are prone to root rot. Choose a pot with adequate drainage and a size that is 5-10cm larger than what they are currently being grown in. A medium sized U-Pot would make a winning combination.
