Euphorbia canariensis, or the Canary Candelabra Spurge, is a prominent succulent in the Canary Islands. It thrives along coastal belts, clinging to dry lava formations, cliffs, and mountain slopes.
Euphorbia canariensis features upright, 4-angled branches with short reddish spines, reaching up to 13.1 feet (4 meters) in height and forming captivating clumps with as many as 150 branches. The branches can be gray-green to deep green with occasional reddish or brownish hues. In spring, small reddish-green to dark red flowers appear near the spine axils, followed by maroon red capsules containing seeds.
