|This fascinating genus includes a broad variety of very different plants, including the common Poinsettias seen in Mexico and at Christmas time. Also found in the genus Euphorbia are spurges, which have many stalks that have small, pointy leaves growing all around, and very unusual flowers with bracts growing in clusters at the stalk-tips. They come in purples, reds, greens and limey-yellows. There are also some dwarf and tree-sized succulents found in Euphorbia. Care can differ quite a bit in this genus; look for your specific plant for care information.
