Euphorbia ingens
Euphorbia ingensTypical seedpods
Few collectors in the UK can provide the space necessary to grow the large columnar Euphorbias such as E. canariense or E. ingens, that is apart from their use as grafting stock. Its a shame as they are very spectacular when seen growing in warmer climates.

The picture on the left shows a tall specimen of E. ingens growing in Santa Catarina Park in Funchal on Madeira, the one on the right (showing the masses of seed pods which can form on the columnar Euphorbias) is an unidentified species in the Jardin Canario on Gran Canaria.
