Euphorbia trigona

Common Name: Good Luck Plant

Euphorbia trigona, commonly known as the Good Luck Plant is probably one of the most popular and well known of the Euphorbias, because of its beautiful, freely branching, vertical lines of deep green, mottled in the center with a zig-zaggy pattern of cream colors. Generally grows to 6′ tall x 2′ wide, but can get to be much larger. It does well in full sun in cool coastal areas, or part shade elsewhere in hotter climates. There is a red color morph with its leaves and stems blushed with deep reds and burgundies in color.
