Euphorbia lactea Cristata is a slow-growing ornamental succulent whose branches are arranged in a wavy pattern. The plant is primarily dark green in color with silvery gray patterns on top, although white, yellow, purple, and pink colors are also found.
Elkhorn is a leafless succulent shrub that grows vertically up to 90 cm (3 ft). Despite the similarity, the plant is not a cactus but two succulents joined together to form an unexpected symbiosis. The plant gets its appearance from the combination of looks of Euphorbia neriifolia and Euphorbia lactea.
