Euphorbia atropurpurea, in Spanish tabaiba majorera (in __German/Deutsch__ purpurote Wolfsmilch), is a shrub in the family Euphorbiaceae, native to Tenerife. It can reach 2 metres in height, and grows in ravines, and on slopes and terraces.

The plant grows best in humid conditions in mid to low altitudes (700 m and a bit below and above)
on the south and west parts of the island.

The leaves are usually a bit more greenish/blueish than shown in this photo. 

The fruit is a red capsule with three dark brown seeds. Like other plants in the genus Euphorbia, it produces a toxic white latex ('milk')  if cut.
