the following Monday.
Orders placed Friday - Sunday

If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Euphorbia millottii

This is one of my favorite euphorbias. Granted it looses it's leaves in winter. Euphorbia millotii grows only in the vicinity of the coastal Lac Bleu, near Vohemar, south of Iharana, northeastern Madagascar. Coastal forest and coastal shrubland. Euphorbia millotii, grows mainly in sandy soils in the shade of dense, windshorn bush. Its habitat is highly threatened by human activities, habitat degradation, fire, habitat clearing for charcoal. It is also collectied for the horticultural trade, increasing the threat of extinction in the wild. Euphorbia millotii is a unique charming succulent scrublets up to 80 cm tall with round, initially greenish red, later grey, lignified branches. The cyathia (flowers) are nodding, encircled by the ample, dark, wine-colored cyathophylls, which unfold only slightly. The foliage, which appears after the bloom is green with rich purple, undersides at first.  Derivation of specific name: This plant is named for the French zoologist Prof. Millot.  Stems: Richly branched from the base, rebranching above. Branches cylindrical, decumbent reddish-green when young, but covered with a silvergray splitted cork-mantle with age and covered with large half-moon-shaped leaf-scars of the deciduous leaves.  Leaves: In tufts at the stem-apex. Blade lanceolate-obovate, 6-12 cm long, and 3 cm across, acuminate, green above, purple-red beneath. Petiole red, to 8-12 mm long. Stipules reduced to minute, scarcely visible, bristles.  Inflorescences (cymes): Simple in the leafless branches in subterminal position and are dichasias with mostly 2, short petiolated cyathia. Peduncles to 5 mm long, pendent.   Flowers (cyathia): Small pendent and enveloped by a cup-shaped pair of pale-red to green bracts (cyathophylls) approx 8 mm long and 10 across, reddish, short acuminate completely covering the cyathia. Nectar-glands saucer-shaped, yellow-green. Ovary subsessile.  Similar species: Euphorbia millotii is closely related to Euphorbia ankarensis. It has the same type of inflorescences with hanging, bell-shaped cyathia and cyathophylls, but its stems are densely branched from the base. It is also similat to Euphorbia lophogona but more branched, branches cylindric, without the ridges of spiny stipule.
