Euphorbia rosea - With variations. : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (6)- around 800 kb each. 
I attach Euphorbia rosea plants recorded at different places of Tamil Nadu, with variations, for the benefit of the members.
First 2 photos, Erect plant with branching from single stem. With hairs.
Second 2 photos, Prostrate and glabrous.
Third 2 photos, Prostrate, branching from rootstock. glabrous

E. rosea usually show such variations. However, in all the lower 2 limbs of glands are larger and longer than the other two. This is typical of the species.
