About Euphorbia Plants
Euphorbia is a very large and diverse genus of flowering plants, commonly called spurge, in the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae).They are a family of plants that may be grown as houseplants or occasionally outdoors. This genus is extremely varied in its plant forms and habitats, ranging from large, succulent trees and tiny, compact succulents to herbaceous perennials and semi- or evergreen, herbaceous shrubs.
Growing Euphorbias is easy and some are hardy in temperate climates. These are easy to start from seed and propagate from cuttings. Their unique flower structure consists of conspicuous leaf bracts of yellow, red, purple, brown, or green, with tiny, male and female floral parts in contrasting colors.
Many species are notable for these peculiar flowers, as well as their handsome foliage and their remarkable form.The herbaceous species are well suited to a rock garden, mixed border, or to naturalizing. The succulents are well suited to a dry tropical garden and warm or temperate greenhouse.
