Euphorbia ingens. It is native to dry areas of southern Africa. It is popularly known as the "candelabra tree", Is a tall succulent tree with green round-like branches resembling a balloon can grow up to 6-8 meters tall.
Its trunk is thick. Candelabrum stems have 5 ridges each and are 3,5-7,5 centimeters thick. Segmented sprouts are dark-green. Young sprouts have paired spines 0,5-2 millimeters long, often reflected. Small greenish yellow flowers sit on the ridges of the topmost segment. The plant blooms from autumn to winter. A red round 3-lobed capsule fruit turns purple when ripened.

The plant's flowers are attractive for butterflies, bees and other insects, which pollinate them when gathering pollen and nectar.

Seeds are edible for birds, who also like to make their nests in the branches of these trees. Particularly woodpeckers often use withered segments for this purpose.

This kind of candelabra tree is very unpretentious and thus can be grown both in gardens and rockeries. The plant prefers sun and needs little water to nourish.
