Native to Tenerife, Euphorbia lambii Truffula is a Tree like succulent. It is a very odd and fantastic looking “miniature tree” that can grow about 6’ to 10’ tall. In the winter (its active growing season) it starts growing rapidly in the cool weather and then forms bursts of colored flowers on the canopy. Trunks never get wider than a few inches in diameter. This is a really beautiful center-piece plant in large containers! A lot of times, pruning some of the lower branches to raise up the canopy enhances the look. Can come up from seed in the garden quite readily. Hardy to the mid 20s. Reduce watering during its summer dormant season. Full sun is best, but O.K. in filtered shade, too. Very drought tolerant when established. Coastal and inland climates good but does not do well in desert heat. It blooms yellow green in the winter.

I’m so excited!

I was really upset when my order came in; two plants looked fabulous, but this one looked dead. I shot off an email with a photo of my limp tree, and was promptly answered telling me to give it a week. Sure enough, my little tree has popped back to life and looks fabulous! I would recommend this guy!

all raves

The plant was receive very well packaged, was in great shape and looked just like the one in the picture. Don't be fooled by the size of the pot; my plant was a full 19" tall from the level of the dirt, much larger then i expected at this price. This is just the first of many plants I plan on buying from Planet Desert!
