Euphorbia plants

Euphorbia plantsThe Euphorbia is an elegant class of plants. The stove and greenhouse varieties are generally succulent, and require but little water, while the hardy kinds need plenty of moisture.

Any rich, light soil suits them, but for the tender, succulent plants it should be mixed with brick rubbish. Best grown from seed, though the roots may be divided.

Their height is about 2 feet.
