Euphorbia bourgeana, also sometimes called the Tree Euphorbia,[1] is a species of spurge native to La Gomera in the Canary Islands.[2][3] Like many Euphobias, parts of the plants are poisonous if ingested.[4] The plant grows well in USDA zones 9b-11.[1] It can grow to a height of 6–10 feet (1.82-3.04 metres), but if potted, it can be kept relatively small.[1][3]

Synonyms[edit]
