Crown-of-Thorns helps give Florida its tropical
look. It can be cultivated as a potted plant or as a ground
cover. Either way, Crown-of-Thorns will provide, once
established, continuous blooms all summer. Over watering and
over fertilization must be avoided.
Euphorbias contain a milky-looking sap that the stems
and the leaves secrete after an injury. Individuals may
experience skin irritation from this sap; therefore, care should
be taken when handling these plants.
