Moroccan Mound (Euphorbia Resinifera) – The Cactus Outlet

Sold out


Euphorbia resinifera or Moroccan mound is a succulent plant species that belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae. It is native to Morocco and can grow up to two feet tall with a spread of about three to four feet wide.

In terms of cold hardiness, Euphorbia resinifera is considered to be marginally cold hardy and can tolerate temperatures down to around 25°F for short periods of time. It is therefore best suited to growing in warm or temperate climates in landscape applications. The Moroccan mound makes a great container plant in colder climates. It is a slow-growing plant, so it may take several years to reach its full size.

5 gallon plants average 10" tall and 10" wide.


Euphorbia design and application suggestions:

Our Euphorbias are tolerant of a wide range of lighting conditions. They will be happy outdoors, indoors, on patios or in a sunroom. The Euphorbias we offer also come in very unique shapes and lend themselves as unique single pieces or used to create contrast amongst other plants.

The Euphorbia royaleana looks like a columnar cactus in growth habit. As temperatures warm and days get longer, this Euphorbia starts to grow large succulent leaves. The Moroccan mound is a very unique and symmetrical looking Euphorbia, great in a pot or in the landscape. Firesticks are full of drama when the stems turn red. Candelia and Pedilanthus look great in containers or used as succulent groundcovers and border plantings in the landscape. Euphorbias also offer tremendous disease and critter resistance. In an outdoor setting, you will rarely see Euphorbias being browsed on by animals.

Why purchase our Euphorbias?

Our Euphorbias are grown right here in Southern Arizona in conditions very closely resembling their native habitats. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our Euphorbias present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your Euphorbias and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

Moroccan Mound

What a great gift. It came through its shipping perfectly. Your instruction sheets were very helpful, and a few days after it arrived, the weather was very good for planting. It's been about two weeks and we had some gentle rain. The plant is strong and healthy and seems very happy to be here.

Great quality plant and careful shipping

I appreciate your offering of high quality, larger size succulents —with careful shipping for those of us who can't get such items closer to home. They are pricey, but worth it for specimen pieces to fill out my landscape.

Satisfied with the size

Plant looks to be in good condition and was the perfect size for the open area I was looking to fill in. No issues with transferring it into the soil either.

These look almost like a blooming onion as they start to mature... but don't eat your cactus lol. Cool & different looking cactus that I've never heard of before!
