In frost free areas, Euphorbia can become a 30' tree but in colder areas, it is often knocked back by frost. It can be single or multiple trunked. It has green cylindrical branches that are about the diameter of a pencil. Leaves are not usually present. Some people are allergic to the sap. It is tolerant of salt, full sun, part shade and quite drought resistant. It is a great accent plant for a container. This form has light green branches if in full sun.
Physical weed control, including mulching, or hand removal protects the watershed from harmful chemicals.
Develop healthy soil for plants that are vigorous and naturally pest-resistant.
