Euphorbia General Information:

Euphorbia are related to the Poinsettia. Its outer bracts turn colorful in early summer, then deepen in fall. Valuable for hot dry sites, these Mediterranean natives know how to take the heat. The more sun the deeper the foliage color. Remarkably adaptable.

Euphorbia Plant Care:

No special care needed. Can be cut back by a third after flowering to prevent seeding. Does not like to be transplanted once established. Does not usually require division, but if desired the fleshy roots can be divided in midspring every 3- 5 years. Damaged stems can be cut off in spring.
