Euphorbia Antisyphilitica 'Candelilla'

Experience the beauty of a Euphorbia Antisyphilitica 'Candelilla 'Plant with our One Gallon size. This drought-tolerant succulent offers an array of vibrant colors and is perfect for any garden or home. Candelilla is an upright perennial with tiny, narrow leaves present only on new growth and fall off early. It showcases pencil-like, nearly leafless gray-green stems that have a waxy coating. Clusters of small creamy white flowers with red centers appear following spring and summer rains. It is suitable for patio container planting and rocky and desert landscapes.

Growing Euphorbia Antisyphilitica 'Candelilla'

  • Plant Euphorbia antisyphilitica 'Candelilla' in a location with full sun exposure, ensuring it receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth.
  • Water the plant sparingly, as it is extremely drought-tolerant; allow the soil to dry out completely between watering sessions to prevent overwatering and root rot.
  • Use well-draining soil, such as sandy or rocky soil, to prevent waterlogging and promote healthy root development.
  • Euphorbia antisyphilitica 'Candelilla' is hardy in USDA zones 8-11 and thrives in warm, arid climates, making it suitable for xeriscaping and desert gardens.
  • Prune the plant minimally, as needed, to remove any dead or damaged stems and maintain its upright, clumping form.
