What is this plant

Asked May 11, 2018, 12:19 PM EDT

Someone gave my son a small bunch of this plant. It covered a 4' circle in a year. He doesn't know what it is and neither do I. I would like to use it on my boulevard. What the heck is it? Thanks

I believe that the plant is Euphorbia cyparissias, also known as cypress spurge. Here is a link that will tell you about it. https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/cypress-spurge

I think you nailed it. Some of the pics in the link are exactly right. Thanks
