An endemic plant species growing in the lowlands of Tenerife

In shape, cardons (Euphorbia canariensis) look curiously like candelabras adorning the south and the hillsides of Tenerife, which is where they are most abundant. These shrubs have spikes on their stalks and a striking bright red fruit sprouting from the tip in spring and summer. This species is endemic to the Canary Islands and shares its habitat with the tabaiba, which is another native plant in the archipelago.
