Author : Jacq.
Family : Euphorbiaceae
Habitat : South Africa
Euphorbia bupleurifolia is a low-growing, spineless, plant with a short caudiciform trunk that looks like a small pine cone topped with a crown of green leaves. The whole plant abounds with milky juice.
Stem: It has a brown, spherical barrel-shaped or columnar caudex usually unbranched or occasionally few branched, that look like a pine-cone or a woody trunk. The stem which does not photosynthesise is a reserve for water, and usually does not grow much higher than around 20 cm and 7,5 cm thick. The trunk has a geometrically-neat tubercled surface, the tubercles (tuberculiform corky scars occasioned by falling away of the old leaves) are prominent dark reddish-brown up to 3 mm hight and crowded in many spiral series imbilicated in the centre giving a reticulate appearance to the surface.
5 years old seedling. Caudex 5/6 cm.
