Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


Cypress Spurge has interesting foliage and rather weird-looking flowers, but it has a tendency to escape from cultivation and may become invasive of neighboring habitats. This species resembles Euphorbia esula (Leafy Spurge), but it is smaller in size and its leaves are more narrow (1/8" across or less). The needle-like leaves of Cypress Spurge also distinguishes it from other Euphorbia spp. (Spurges). Another common name of Euphorbia cyparissias is Graveyard Weed.
