Euphorbia leucocephala has many common names, but Snowflake is probably the most appropriate, so I will stick with that one. This shrub can reach 8-12′ tall and 3-4′ wide. It is recommended that it be pruned back after flowering is complete to prevent it from getting too leggy. Like its relative, the Christmas Poinsettia, Snowflake requires a shorter daylength in the late fall early winter to flower. External light sources such as porch lights and security lights will prevent this plant from flowering. The tiny white flowers surrounded by very small white leaf bracts are fragrant. It is very spectacular in full bloom and easy to see how it got its common name ‘Snowflake’.
Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this plant in stock.
