It goes by the common name Thornless Euphorbia. How original can it be?

But yes, unlike most of the other similar looking Euphorbia millii, this succulent has no thorny spines along its stems and branches. So you can safely and easily handle this plant if you intend to propagate it by cuttings. The prominently flashy red flowers occur in pairs and the 2 red petals hold the yellow anthers within a flower.
