Euphorbia tithymaloides ssp smallii ‘Variegatus’

Description

A peculiar, robust, small to medium-sized, moderately fast-growing, somewhat erect shrub that possesses distinctive, strong, stout, succulent zig-zag stems and brightly variegated foliage with a beautiful mix of cream to pale yellow, green to slight tinge of pink and red.
Flowers a cyathium (cup-shaped inflorescence surrounded with a collection of bracts), vary from pink to red.
Adaptable to a wide range of light conditions, it prefers semi-shade condition with a few good hours of direct sun and the rest of the day with filtered light. Colors on foliage seem to be light dependent, with strong, direct light to generate more suffused pink or red on the foliage. Plant is drought tolerant and defoliation can occur should there be too much a water stress. Prune back occasionally to get a bushier plant. Propagate by cuttings.
