Overall habit of this perennial spurge is vase shaped; sturdy erect stems and new growth is red, leaves mature to green. Clusters of yellow "flowers" tip the stems in summer. The showy yellow part of euphorbia flowers is actually bracts--true flowers are small and not showy at all. Milky sap from cut stems of all Euphorbia is toxic and irritating to skin and eyes. Avoid planting near paths or places where children or pets play.
