Euphorbia balsamifera
Euphorbia balsamifera on Porto Santo
Euphorbia balsamifera on Gran Canaria
The plant in both pictures is believed to be Euphorbia balsamifera, though when not in flower it is difficult to distinguish it from E. obtusifolia. The fisrt picture was taken on Porto Santo, the second was taken on the west side of Gran Canaria, north of Mogan.
