What is Euphorbia marginata

Euphorbia marginata commonly called as snow-on-the mountain, or hatsuyukisou (scientific name: Euphorbia marginata) is a native colony of southern North America, non-cold annual grass of the genus Euphoraceae. Leaf contrast is beautiful on the green leaves, with the leaves of the white covering ring. A small white flower cup in the form of a cup is bloomed in a scattering inflorescence from summer to autumn. In fact, the things that look like this flower are one stamen and several stamens. There are no petals, the one that looks like a petal is an accessory (bract). Flowers are not as worth seeing as leaves. Care must be taken because milky white liquid emerging from the cut of the leaf stem may cause inflammation of the skin. In the same genus, there is a poinsettia (scientific name: Euphorbia pulcherrima) popular as a Christmas houseplant with bracts, red, white, yellow, respectively.
