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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!
