This slow-growing evergreen, succulent shrub can attain a height of two feet. It has green leaves and either yellow, red or pink flowers. Various hybrids of the plant have been produced offering larger, different color bracts, whether yellow or pink. The plant has a high drought tolerance and can be propagated by cuttings. Prostrate and upright forms are available. The sap of this plant can be a skin irritant. The plant has thorns.

Chinese grow E. millii as plant of fortune, they believe that when the plant produces 8 flower in an inflorescence, they will be lucky. Hybridization of Euphobia millii started in Thailand and China around 1990. A single complete collection of cultivars wouldn't exist because too many hybrids were produced. See Thai Euphorbias - exotic milti-colored.
