Snow on the Mountain, Ghost Weed, Summer Icicle
|Varieties include the popular, upright, shrubby Poinsettia, the unusual, perennial, trailing Myrtle Euphorbia, and the annual Snow-on-the-Mountain with its showy foliage. The flowers are tiny, colored yellow to green, and are often surrounded by leaves colored like petals, called bracts, which look like flowers, in white, pink, red or green. The white sap can irritate skin and eyes, and is sometimes poisonous to humans and some animals. Requires good soil drainage and full sun. Start by division and seed.
With several varieties of different sizes and colors, it is prized for flower arrangements. All have petal-like, papery bracts beneath tiny flowers. Some need staking for support. Named for the white margins on the uppermost leaves.
