   This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Rodolfo Amando Philippi in 1860. It is found in a small costal area of northern Chile, growing in a well drained soil with some winter rain and lots of sun. The caudex will disappear by time, and the plant will grow into a small bush, 120 centimetres in height with pale yellow flowers.

This is a winter grower
