Attached are pictures of Euphorbia viguieri from Sagar Upvan, Mumbai in February 2013.
Natural or cultivated??
Cultivated.
It would be interesting to compare my photographs uploaded as E. neohumbergii and E. viguieri uploaded by ... The two Madagascarian species are supposed to be very close and often confused, but latter having longer spines and not closely set leaf scars of former. It would be worthwhile to evaluate our photographs critically.
Euphorbia viguieri (Viguier's Spurge).. seen in a Exhibition at Byculla
Yes this is Euphorbia viguieri Denis, a species from Africa.

Euphorbia neohumbertii
This interesting ornamental which in fist look appears to be simillar to E. milii is quite distinct in taller habit often reaching more than 1 m, unbranched 4-6 angled stems with flat often jagged tubercles along angles, broad leaf scars on faces, much larger leaves and very important cyathium orange-red lacking two spreading involucre bracts.
This endemic plant from Madagaskar, has been brought into cultivation
and was photographed by me from Khalsa College in Delhi.

I think its occurrence in India is not recorded Sir.
I found it cultivated in pots and in some beds also only last year. Had never seen it before. Would be happy to confirm or know true identity.
After seeing the upload by .. which you have confirmed as E. viguieri, I request you to have a look at my plant which I have identified as E. neohumbertii. The two Madagascarian species are considered to be very close and often confused, former having much longer spines popping up and scattered leaf scars, and latter shorter spines and closely set leaf scars.
Please have a look at these uploads, compare with mine and give your verdict:

Yes, E. viguieri and E. neohumbertii have not been recorded from India. But they are confined to ornamental gardens. I do not think they occur naturally.

No KEY found, yet this strange looking ornamental, found in a front yard, seems similar to eFI or Dave's Garden.
