Flowering Spurge

Euphorbia corollata

Description:

Native, perennial flowering plant from the Euphorbiaceae family. Around 2 feet tall, blue/green leaves in a whorled arrangement at the base of smooth stems. Stems exude sticky/milky sap. Tiny white flower clusters. Note: From what I have read, each "flower" is actually composed of appendages that LOOK like petals which surround a central cyathium. This cyathium is what actually contains the flowers! I wish I could have gotten better shots! I need to buy a lighting setup for dreary days like this one!

Habitat:

Dirt roadside surrounded by thick mixed hardwood forest.
