Description:

It is a very particular succulent, commonly known as the "devil’s backbone" due to the zigzag shape of its slender herbaceous stems. In nature it tends to reach even 2 m of height, developing bright lanceolate leaves which are covered with veins, arranged in opposite ways along the stem. As part of the Euphorbiaceae family, this plant also has an irritating milky sap inside, which, however, when treated correctly, is the raw material for important ointments for skin care. Between late spring and early summer P. tithymaloides will delight you with extravagant scarlet flowers, extremely lively and of an absolutely unique shape, similar to a shoe!
