Euphorbia Snow On The Mountain (Euphorbia Marginata) - Grow Euphorbia seeds for some wonderful, showy color in late summer and fall.

Grow Snow on the Mountain with other late season flowers like dahlias and mums. These Euphorbia flowers are good for cutting and have a long-life in the vase, but the stems need to be seared to take in water.
