Euphorbia ingens - Candelabra tree.
Euphorbia ingens is a thickset succulent tree that grows up to 10m and resembles a cactus. It is associated with koppies where the habitat is somewhat drier. The branches all form from the central trunk giving the tree its candalabra shape. The leaves have short spines on their ridges.
Flowers in mid winter.
The white sap of Euphporbia ingens is poisonous and a drop on the skin will cause a blister and can cause blindness if contact is made with the eyes.
