We got this at a native plant sale quite a few years ago. Over the years, I've gone back and forth on the question of its gardenworthiness - luckily, my lack of resolve paid off, because this plant has really grown into its prime in the last few seasons, with bountiful sprays of tiny white flowers that last for weeks. The small upper leaves have white margins, but the variegation is subtle - not obvious unless you get real close.

Unlike many other euphorbias, it's not a thug - I've seen no spreading by seed or roots.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog

- Seed from '07 garden. Whitish-grey ball seeds. Baggy 70F (5w; no G). Bottom heat did not help. Another attempt starting with baggy 35F (6w) - 70F (~20%G, 3-11d)
Apparently needs some cold conditioning before germination.
