About Euphorbia: Euphorbia is a large genus known for its highly colored bracts (Poinsettia). It contains a wide variety of hardy perennials. Trailing forms are useful in rock or alpine gardens, sprawling over stonewalls or in the front of the garden while clumping forms lend a nice contrast and texture to the garden. A good cut flower as a filler. When using as a cut flower, it’s best to singe the ends of the stem to prevent the milky sap from oozing out.
