Eyebane, or Euphorbia nutans (Scientific name: Euphorbia nutans) is an annual plant of the family Euphorbiaceae, native to North and South America. It was naturalized in Japan during the Meiji era (1868-1912). It grows wild in fields, wastelands, fields, and roadsides. The grass is 20 to 40 cm tall. The stems have a reddish tinge and are oblique. The leaves are oblong-ovate, 1.5 to 3.5 cm long and 0.5 to 1.2 cm wide, with shallow serrations on the leaf margins, and are borne in pairs. The petals are degenerate and absent. Circular glandular bodies form in summer and autumn, and the appendages look like white to light red four-petaled flowers.
