Euphorbia cotinifolia (Caribbean Copper Plant)

Euphorbia atropurpurea (Caribbean Copper Plant)

Description

Upright gray purplish stems hold thin, slightly fleshy and ovate shaped leaves that are about 3 inches wide by 4 inches long and have a beautiful coppery reddish purple color. Flowering occurs in late spring to mid-summer and, as if the bright leaves and even brighter veins aren’t showy enough, the small heads of green and white flowers perched at the tips of new stems add a contrast that is at once restrained and exuberant. Plant in a well-drained soil in bright shade (inland)  to full coastal sun with moderate water. When shaded, the foliage is greener. Protect from full sun in all but coastal climes.
