Even though I decided I would be getting rid of this plant it’s been looking better by the day since the weather warmed up. I’m now undecided again.
I have been doing some reading though and this is apparently a pretty bad one for the intensely irritating and potentially dangerous latex. I should get rid of this plant for the nephew I guess. He’s getting old enough and curious enough about things it could be a problem. I’ve been pruning mine with care but without gloves for the past 5 years and apparently I’ve been lucky and never come into direct contact with the latex.
Maybe I’ll solve all my problems by getting rid of the Euphorbia and replacing it with a Sedum morganianum instead of the cactus or orchid… plus I’ll be freeing up about a 3′ diameter patch of my garden in full sun…
Ok, decided again, this has to go, but after it finishes flowering.
