Euphorbia enopla is one of the most attractive of the euphorbias. The green, grey-green or bluish-green, ribbed branches are about 3 cm in diameter with the decorative spines tightly arranged in rows along the ribbed edges. The stems often branch out towards the upper section forming a candelabra-like effect.
As with all other Euphorbias, when a plant get damaged it exudes a thick white milky sap known as latex. This latex is poisonous and may irritate skin. Pay extreme attention not to get any in your eyes or mouth.
