50 (250)cm, Balsamiferous Spurge is native of all islands in rocky and sunny places in the lower succulent zone. It has broad, shortly lanceolate, fresh green to glaucous leaves on broad, light terracotta brown, very succulent stems. It makes a single central flower above light to yellowish green pseudo-petals (cyathies) on each branch followed by a large yellowish to reddish green, sometimes slightly pubescent seed capsule. Seeds from populations in the North of La Gomera (Agulo, 80m and east of Hermigua, 220m), where larger plants (up to 220cm in height) can be found and which may be a result of more frequently available moisture, North Eastern Tenerife (200m, Anaga range), northern La Palma (150m), and small, locally ocurring specimens in the upper parts of valleys in the Jandía region on Fuerteventura (300m). An easily grown and very robust species. X-III.
