Firesticks

The Euphorbia Tirucalli Rosea, “Sticks on Fire”, is a variegated selection of Euphorbia Tirucalli, the “Pencil Cactus”. Be careful when handling the vibrant foliage on these plants. The milky sap can be a skin irritant and it is definitely not recommended to get any in your eyes. Recessed in a garden is an ideal location for the “Sticks on Fire”. From there it is easy to contrast with other bright and colorful items, or stay with the burning orange color and use Sedum Nussbaumezrianum, or Crassula ‘Campfire’.
