A garden plant, cultivated in a plant nursery at Nasik, Maharashtra.
No flowers present when the picture was taken.
Pictures taken on the 2nd of April.
I think this is Alluaudia procera
It definitely looks something like Alluaudia procera
Would be interested to know differences between Alluaudia procera and Fouquieria splendens. We found a similar plant labelled as latter in Panchkula Cactus garden.

Garden plant for id - 190113 ANB-0026 - Mumbai: I would like to know the name of this thorny garden plant if possible.
... a guess from me: Euphorbia milii.
This could be Madagascar Ocotillo, Alluaudia procera.
I had posted earlier for id.
Thank you ... I have some Euphorbia milii (Crown of Thorns) plants that are flowering but this seemed to be something different. Perhaps it is the plant that ... is referring to.
Yes ..., no doubts ! ... your plant must be ... ID.

Alluaudia procera
While processing my upload of Fouquieria splendens from Cactus garden Panchkula, I labelled another similar plant as Fouquiera- confirm. This was lying in my folders till I finally came to know that it was Alluaudia procera, Madagascar Ocotillo belonging to a distinct family, Didieraceae
An example of convergent evolution with American Ocotillo, Fouquieria splendens of Fouquieriaceae showing similar habit but different in arrangement of leaves and structure of flowers.
