Euphorbia aeruginosa is a beautiful bushy, spiny succulent, with four-angled blue-green stems and bright copper-colored spines.
Pedilanthus bracteatus, commonly called Tall slipper plant, is a plant with green cylindrical stems and widely spaced leaves which grow up to 4 inches long. It is a nice vertical plant that can grow up to 5-6 feet tall that is attractive in cactus, succulent and xeriscape gardens, and is also very impressive in a large container.
During the cold season, Pedilanthus bracteatus loses its leaves and is a mass of green stems. In spring through fall, it produces odd flowers which are sandwiched between rounded red bracts. The pale yellow-green flowers, termed cyathia by botanists, are specialized structures unique to Euphorbaceae and their close relatives. Many parts of this plant are covered with small hairs, and its milky sap can irritate the skin.
Tall slipper plant is believed to be auspicious in some Asian cultures. It is easy to grow and requires minimal care. It prefers well-drained sandy soils. The flowers attract birds, butterflies and bees.
