Euphorbia cyparissias, the Cypress Spurge, is a plant in the genus Euphorbia, which is native to Europe and was introduced to North America in the 1860s by the colonists as an ornamental plant. It is sometimes called "Graveyard weed" as it is often seen in country graveyards. In its natural setting, Cypress Spurge thrives in dunes, pannes, coastal headlands and grasslands; in North America it is commonly found in the dry, gravelly soil of roadsides, pastures, and meadows. Cypress Spurge thrives in open, disturbed areas rather than forests or highly cultivated soil. It reproduces by seeds and also by the very well developed underground roots. It usually has a height of 1080 cm (6-12 inches). Its petal-like bracts are usually green-yellow, maturing to purple or red from May to August. Cypress Spurge grows a fruit that, when mature, explodes to spread seeds up to 16 feet (4.9 m). However the plant also reproduces through lateral root buds which allows it to spread quick and densely. It can be easily identified by its leaves, which are small and linear (they have a length of 24 cm and a width of 12 mm).

Ciao Fabrizio!
Bella immagine, ben composta. Mi piace la messa a fuoco concentrata sulla formica e il bellissimo effetto bokeh intorno. Bella anche la luce soft con il piccolo riflesso sulla testa della formica.
ciao e buona domenica! Vanda
