I am not a professional nor an expert in Euphorbiaceae or Monadenium taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. do ship in the winter. I have 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each. I only ship to the main 48 States. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

The stems has a succulent caudiciform tuber less than 10 cm wide, with 1 to several grey-green branches 4 to 5 angled, spreading or weakly erect, pale-green to 4 cm thick at the base and 1-2 cm thick above. The leaves are ephemeral, large, oval, dark-glossy green, nicely marked with paler veining, older leaves often tinged with reddish-purple and the main rib on the underside of the leaves is heavily spined. The leaves shed when the plant produces its small flowers. Spines green-brownish to reddish-purple irregular or regular many-forked star-shaped more or less randomly scattered over the surface of the stem along the angle of the stem. Flowers are remarkably spectacular, born at apex of stem, small, dark-pink, enveloped in scarlet bracts and borne on long, rich red, quadrangular stalk that bears fewer cartilaginous prickles.
