Euphorbia horrida is a spiny succulent shrub with irregular basally clumping stems. In age it will forms tight clumps of upright columns up to a metre wide that closely resemble some cactus species. It also has clustered crowns of somewhat ferocious spines much like the true cacti.

Like all Euphorbias, the latex-like sap is toxic and care should be taken not to come in contact with it. Should contact occur, wash affected area thoroughly and avoid getting in contact with mucous membranes. Spines will often cause sap to leak--consider this when unboxing.
