Euphorbia is a very large, extremely diverse genus of flowering plants of over 2000 species, distributed in a range of habitats and climatic zones around the globe. Most species have considerably reduced floral structures, grouped together into a cyathium. Leaves are also variable in shape and form, often being short-lived on succulent Euphorbia species. Species in this huge genus can be grown in a rock garden, a mixed border, or even a woodland garden. Succulent species are best grown in a greenhouse or dry, tropical gardens. Some plants, such as Poinsettias, are grown commercially, while many others are grown and sold as ornamentals for their attractive unique flowers. Contact with their caustic, milky latex may irritate the skin.
