Euphorbia Rigida

Blossom period
January through April
Mediterranean Basin, Asia Minor

The plant is easy to reseed in the garden. Euphorbias have a white sap (latex) that runs when part of the plant is cut. This latex is very irritating to the skin and can cause burns to the eyes. The wilted inflorescences turn pink and then deep red in May-June.
