The genus Euphorbia comprises nearly one thousand species, a large number of which yield a milky juice or latex. Some of these plants are familiar as garden plants, e.g. the Poinsettia the Mexican fire bush, the "crown of thorns", and the strange cactus-like Euphorbia lactea that is a familiar object in our parks and gardens.
