Euphorbia inermis Mill
Best known as Medusa's Head or Green Crown

⭐⭐ VERY RARE ⭐⭐Most have never heard of seen or even know this exist!

Description: Euphorbia inermis is a many-branched medusae form euphorbia up to about 50 cm in diameter with branches radiating like fingers from a central stem, continued below ground as a large fleshy tuber. Euphorbia inermis is monoecious. A properly grown plant is a joy, especially when it is in flower, for then each short, erect finger is covered with fragrant, pure white (or yellow) flowers that look like snow crystals and the cluster is exquisite. This is one of the caudex-forming Euphorbias, very similar to Euphorbia esculenta and Euphorbia caput-medusae. If you look down into a large specimen you'll see what looks like a sun flower; it's another example of a Fibonacci spiral. The whole plant produce a caustic milky sap.

Root: Tuberous.

Body (main stem or caudex): Short and thick up to 10 cm in diameter, producing a crown of three or more series of crowded branches lying over each other like tiles around the central flattened or depressed tuberculate obconic area at the top, mostly below ground and not rising much above ground level.

Branches: Club-like to cylindric, serpent-like, tessellately tuberculate, glabrous, greyish-green, blue-green or dull green 4-25 cm long, but in cultivation the branches often elongate a lot and become snake-like, 10-12 mm thick, ascending or ascending-spreading.

Tubercles rhomboid, 2 5-10 mm long, 3-6 mm broad and 1-2 mm prominent, shortly and obtusely conical, with a small white leaf-scar.

Leaves: Minute, rudimentary, soon deciduous, 1 mm long and broad, ovate, acute
Inflorescences: Cyathia solitary in the axils of the tubercles at the tips of the branches. Peduncles stout 3-4 mm long, bearing about 4 bracts and 1 involucre, glabrous, sometimes persistent. Bracts 1-2 mm long, scale-like, ovate or oblong, entire or ciliate; involucre 8-9 mm in diameter, cup-shaped, white, with 5 (rarely 4) nectar glands and 5 transversely rectangular ciliate lobes, glabrous on the cup outside and within, but pubescent on the back of the lobes and filled with woolly-white bracteoles; glands glabrous, 1-3 mm long, 2-3 mm broad across the tips variable in shapeon the same plant, green with white, bifid. toothed, or with much divided pro-cesses, sometimes entirely white; ovary sessile, woolly-white at the apex, thinly sprinkled with ascending or spreading hairs or rarely glabrous; styles united to the apex into a slender column 3-4 mm long; stigmas about 1 mm long, more or less deeply bifid, with cuneate lobes, radiating and contiguous forming a sort of disc.

Blooming season: Flowers appear in spring and summer.

Fruit: Capsule sessile, trigonous-subglobose, 3-5 mm in diameter, glabrous or with a few hairs.

Seeds: 3 mm long, ellipsoid, slightly 4-angled, minutely tuberculate on the dorsal sides smooth on the ventral, dark brown
