Common Name: Medusa head
Origin: Euphorbia flanaganii originates from the sandy grasslands of South Africa – the Eastern Cape to the former Transkei.
Description: E. flanaganii is a low, spineless succulent that forms many branches, resembling the legendary Medusa’s snake-like hair. The central stem creates a tuberous body called a caudex with roots and branches extending, growing new arms from the edges. If satisfied, mature plants will produce yellow-green flowers (cyathia) from the head of branches in spring and summer.
