Euphorbia hyssopifolia

Euphorbia hyssopifolia
leafy spurge; hyssopleaf sandmat
Synonym(s) Chamaesyce hyssopifolia
Common name leafy spurge; hyssopleaf sandmat
Family euphorbiaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers white (late spring-early fall)

This spurge occurs in subtropical and tropical regions, and is a somewhat common weed in our Houston garden. It's readily recognizable as a euphorbia, especially when blooming with its insignificant white flowers, and not hard to pull up. So I don't mind it too much. I haven't seen it grow much taller than 6 inches, although it reportedly can grow several feet tall in ideal conditions.

This is a weed in our garden
