Euphorbia tuberculata for Sale


This is a robust and large growing medusa head. The plants are found from around the Malmesbury district northwards.

The size of specimens do vary from locality to locality. There is some resemblance to Euphorbia caput-medusae from the Cape Town area and the plants are probably closely related. Euphorbia tuberculata is however generally a more robust plant with thicker branches and more prominent tubercles.
