Euphorbia stenoclada - The Silver Thicket

This is a listing for pack of 10 seeds of this Madagascan endemic.

Like many of the endemic plants on the large island of Madagascar, the Silver Thicket shares some features with its African cousins but has been isolated for long enough to develop unique characteristics of its own. Its habitat is the dry scrub thickets of the island where it can form impenetrable thorny thickets of individual plants that can get to 4 or 5 metres tall. For all of this, it makes a charming pot plant or garden plant, where winter temperatures never drop below 10 Deg C.

They are relatively fast growing (the title picture is of a specimen 2 years from seed where the character is already showing) and will form all sorts of unusual shapes with its short jointed, thorny stems. It will flower, when large enough, towards the ends of the stems. The flowers are much reduced in size and form, like all Euphorbias and, where pollinated, explosive capsules containing 3 seeds are produced. An excellent plant as a houseplant, it can tolerate a huge degree of neglect requiring only a bright locaction and the occasional watering.
