Euphorbia antisyphilitica-Candelilla
Euphorbiaceae Family

1/2" stems grow to 1' in height and spread by underground stems to form a clump 3' across.  Pink and white flowers along the stems appear after rain.  Extremely drought tolerant.  Full sun in any well drained soil.  Even will make a good container plant in colder areas.
