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. *Note: Milky sap from broken stems can be a skin irritant for some. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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 mid-spring every 3- 5 years. Damaged stems can be cut off in spring.
