South African succulent Euphorbia with white or yellow fragrant flowers. One of the largest medusas. Like the others, it grows a central "head" with many "arms" (the venomous snakes of Greek mythology) radiating outward around it. The stem may grow a few inches high and wide, the total width of the plant a foot or so. The arms are relatively thick for this group.
