This is a popular container plant, as a focal element in succulent gardens, on banks and southwestern style plantings. Young plants are tender to frost and do best in warm and sunny microclimates. Like other Euphorbias, E. t. ‘Sticks on Fire’, has a poisonous sap that drips from cut stems and care must be taken when trimming this plant, including the use of protective eyewear.
