Euphorbia Milii, commonly known as Spurge, is a sturdy ornamental plant which can be grown easily even by novice gardeners. These perennial shrubs have a score of varieties and while demanding very little care, acts as a beautiful addition to rock gardens, meadows etc.

Basic Care

Euphorbia Miliis are tough plants which require very little care. The plants benefit from regular pruning and occasional fertilizing. These plants just need adequate sunlight and water to flourish.

Watering

The euphorbia is a drought resistant plant. Therefore they require moderate moisture.

Lighting

These plants flourish under full sunlight though they can tolerate partial shade. The plants with deep purple or reddish foliage will have more intense colouring if placed under the sun.

Soil

Drought resistant as they are, spurges need a soil with good water draining capacity. These plants can grow in any kind of soil. They don't mind sandy or average soils.

Flowering

The flowers of Euphorbia Miliis are arranged in an unusual way. The actual flowers are small and not at all attractive. But they are surrounded by the colourful and flashy bracts or modified leaves. The bracts continue to thrive in their original glory even after the flower withers.

New varieties of spurges are coming up with leaves coloured burgundy, cream etc.

Spurges are perennial in nature.

Pruning

Any damaged stems should be trimmed off in early spring to keep the plant tidy.

Also, it is important to cut back the stems at the base immediately after bloom.

The clipping should be done carefully as new shoots may arise.

Precautions

The milky sap that runs through the veins of these plants are poisonous and skin irritant. Therefore, gloves should be worn while planting them.

Fertilizing

Euphorbia Miliis don't need fertilizing enough. When the leaves at the bottom turn yellow, a water-soluble plant food can be given to the plant.

Diseases And Control

Gardeners need to watch out for pests like whitefly. In case of mildew, water should be sprayed under the leaves.

Euphorbia Miliis are prone to nematodes, spider, mites, aphids, mealybugs, fungal and bacterial diseases.

Planting Techniques

Growing euphorbias from seeds is a difficult job. They are usually propagated by root stem cuttings. These cuttings can be planted in a soilless medium like peat and keep the pot in a plastic bag. The pot can be allowed to breathe once a day. Once the cutting has rooted, it can be transferred to soil.

Benefits

Euphorbia Miliis require very little pampering. Therefore, they are ideal for novice gardeners. The bright foliage also serves ornamental purposes.
