    Euphorbia or Spurge

    Euphorbia is a large and succeful flower family.
    Most of the spurges are perennial and evergreen
    and very drought tolerant.
    These plants all contain the white latex, that is not only poisionous but inflicts a very painful
    inflamations of the skin . For this reason
    It is nescesary to wear gloves when handling
    an Euphorbia or spurge.

    Cyathium from Euphorbia or spurge, with
    Bracts 1 and seed capsule 2

    Spurge flowers

    The pseudanthia ("false flowers") of the spurge
    is a cyathium, a flowerlike structure
    consisting of two bracts that form a scale.
    These bracks often have an attractive distinct
    color, like yellow-green.
    The seeds are placed in a capsule that splits
    open when exposed to drought. The seeds are
    then trown out.
    Exept for cassava, spurges have little use to humanity,
    they are a all very poisionous. A few spurges are grown
    as garden plants, like the Poinsettia.
    Spurges are very well adapted to drought,
    some of them with succulent stems.
    The name "spurge" is derives from the French
    "espurgier", which means "to purge," suggesting
    its use as a strong purgative. Only some goats are able to eat them without develloping illness.

    Euphorbia and king Juba II

    The first text about an Euphorbia has been
    written by King Juba II. He was a well-known
    King at the Time of Julius Ceasar.
    King Juba II wrote a description of the Orient
    in which he describes a very laxative succulent
    ( Euphorbia regisjuba, named after him).
    The name of the family of Euphorbia has
    been named after his physician, Euphobus.
