Plant of the Week: Euphorbia Rigida

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 9:00 AM

You have seen these around town in the medians or in your home's landscape. One of my new favorite plants is the Gopher plant or Euphorbia rigida. You know we gardeners are always changing our favorite plants. I love the flowers it puts out, plus the easy care and low water nature of this plant.

Gopher Plant
  • University of Arizona Pima County Cooperative Extension
  • Gopher Plant

This plant works well in containers and since it is low water, it can be hand watered weekly during the hot season and every two weeks in the winter.

Check it out and see if you have a place to put one in a pot. It will work with many color pots - so have some fun in combining colors!
