In spring this Euphorbia produces these yellow green flower bracts that stand out in the border. They are best in clumps rather than individual plants. Euphorbia have adapted and colonized almost every niche on the planet, and the thousands of different varieties range from dessert succulents often resembling cacti, to the Pointsetta. One problem with all Euphorbias is that all they produce a toxic milky sap that can produce blisters on sensitive people's skin.
