General Information

Like leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula)

Looks like an Agave Flower.

This plant is toxic, and touching it can cause irritation. It bleeds a very poisonous milky sap.

Most spurges are good deterrents for herbivores, Some work well as wound healers.

Related to the Poinsettia garden flower.

The active ingredient in Spurges are terpen esters. One such terpen ester is resiniferatoxin, which is 10,000 to 100,000 times more irritating than capsaicin, the substance that makes chili peppers taste hot. Some terpen esters are also known to be carcinogenic.
