Euphorbia grandicornis is a great looking upright multi stemmed succulent shrub with strong spines resembling the shape of cows’ horns. It has great angular and zig-zag shaped stems making in a good ornamental choice. It has a close rigid bushy growth habit and can become quite large (aprox 6 ft.)
Stem: 3-4 winged, up to 4 in. (10 cm) in diameter, irregular, constricted in broad, twisted, triangular segments about 6 in. (15 cm) long.
Tiny, scale-like leaves between the spines, in summer where the new growth forms, but usually devoid of leaves all winter. So that photosynthesis is carried out by the green branches.
Spines shield grey or brownish, joined, forming a horny continuous ridge, the (stipular) spines are paired 30-70 mm long.
Flowers are quite striking and brilliant yellow cyathia, growing just above the spines on the ridges of the terminal segment, usually on mature plants, and mostly those growing in full sun. Flowers and fruits in late spring.
