Euphorbia royleana, commonly known as Royle's Spurge, is a distinctive and impressive succulent native to the Himalayan regions of India, Nepal, and Pakistan. It's known for its tree-like growth habit and architectural form, making it a striking addition to gardens where it can be accommodated.

This plant can reach substantial heights of 6 to 15 feet, growing as a shrubby, tree-like succulent. Euphorbia royleana forms a thick, central stem with branches that grow upright and are covered in spines. The stem and branches are segmented, and the plant's overall appearance is quite sculptural.

The leaves of Royle's Spurge are small, narrow, and typically green, but they are not the plant's main attraction. The flowers, which are small and greenish-yellow, are also not particularly showy. Instead, the appeal of this plant lies in its overall structure and presence.

Euphorbia royleana thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. It's relatively drought-tolerant, making it a good choice for xeriscaping and dry gardens. However, it's important to note that like other Euphorbias, it produces a milky sap when cut or damaged, which can be irritating to the skin and eyes.

In landscaping, Euphorbia royleana is often used as a focal point in succulent gardens, rock gardens, or as a stand-alone specimen. Its height and unique form can add a dramatic touch to landscapes, particularly in regions with a similar climate to its native habitat.

Overall, Euphorbia royleana is a low-maintenance and visually striking plant, ideal for adding height and architectural interest to a garden. Its tree-like form and adaptability to dry conditions make it a valuable addition to any collection of succulents or drought-tolerant plants.
