Flowers of wild Spurge growing with other native plants in an uncultivated field margin.

Field Margin Flowers 10 – Spurge

Scroll down to content

This post features Spurge (Euphorbia spp. – maybe Sun Spurge or Petty Spurge or both). Lots of wild Spurge species in the UK, and frequently seen as cultivated varieties in gardens. An unobtrusive plant with distinctive yellowy flowers that lack both petals and sepals. Difficult to spot among the other native flowering plants occupying the uncultivated ground on the edge of the big maize field in the village, but marked out by the brighter yellowy-green foliage.
