Euphorbia 'Sticks on Fire' will add height, color and texture to your drought tolerant landscape. A vigorous shrub like grower that will reach up to 8 feet tall. The color on this succulent is naturally green, but if planted in full sun will turn bright florescent colors of orange, coral, pink, green and red. A show stopper in any succulent garden. Because it can reach up to 5 feet in width, this plant needs ample space to grow.
