flowering spurge (Euphorbia corollata; SPURGE FAMILY [Euphorbiaceae]) Erect perennial with milky juice and large plant-to-plant variation in height.  A single whorl of leaves separates the branched upper stem from the unbranched, alternate-leafed lower stem.  Structure of the small (") flowers is complex, but small white bracts produce the appearance of a simple, 4-5 petaled flower.  Fruits are three-lobed and stalked.  Old fields and dry woods.  Flowers throughout summer and early fall.  [066]
