Euphorbia arbuscula

A beautiful speciemen of euphorbia arbuscula overlooking the Detwah lagoon of the northwestern Socotra.

As with many other endemic species on Socotra, this one survives the hardest of droughts, and even blossoms in the dry season. I visited during the end of the wet season, so I did not encounter any in bloom.

Euphorbia arbuscula is endemic to Socotra.
