December EcoQuest: Spot Spurge

Love & Support | Sustain & Restore

Event Description

Find and map as many sandmat spurge plants (Euphorbia sect. Anisophyllum) as possible!

Poinsettias (Euphorbia pulcherrima) are often a botanical highlight of the holiday season, but this month we are taking a look at one of their relatives: sandmats. The red, white and green colors of these plants and their matted growing habit bring garlands or knit sweaters to mind.

There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to these tiny tenacious “weeds.” Get into the holiday spirit, get your closeup lenses ready and see how many sandmat spurge you can spot!
