Euphorbia lactea 'Crested White Ghost'

$ 45.00 Sold out
Size: 6"

With a coral-like growth habit, E. lactea ‘Crested White Ghost' cristata features an undulating uniquely geometric appearance, both in shape and coloration.  The margins of the stems create unique angles between a series of regularly spaced spines, which will blush to red with adequate sun exposure. 

It requires ample sunlight in order to realize its best growth and coloration. Beyond this need, this exotic looking specimen is surprisingly easy to care for – indeed, coddling this variety is far more likely to cause damage than a bit of neglect! A porous soil mixture within a well draining pot is a must to avoid ‘wet feet,’ as is ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface. A regular watering routine will ensure the most consistent growth, but monitor your frequency closely and be sure to only provide a thorough drink once the soil has become dry to the touch.

Hardy only to Zone 10, take steps to protect it from freezing temperatures, which could cause scarring to its mesmerizing stems. Furthermore, be mindful of the fact that all Euphorbia contain a toxic latex sap that can cause skin irritation – so be sure to keep this variety away from curious children or pets.


    Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
