African Milk Tree (Euphorbia Trigona 'Red Devil') is a hardy, fast-growing species in a reddish green form. It will eventually grow into a small shrub up to two metres tall or kept small and compact when grown in containers. When encountering dryness or coldness in winter, it will defoliate to adapt. 

Please note: While not all succulents are poisonous, the white, milky sap of the African milk tree is mildly toxic and can irritate the skin and eyes. Be cautious when handling the plant, and consider wearing protective gloves. Wash your hands immediately after pruning, and keep the plant away from children and pets
