Small white flowered poinsettia - looking for name, info

raygrogan(Iowa and Hawaii)March 2, 2006

In some old style Hawaii gardens at Christmas time you see a bush covered with tiny white "flowers". I have been told it is a poinsettia. Anyone know the name or anything else about it? Thanks. Ray

I've seen it called a Mexican Poinsettia, but most often it's called Snow on the Mountain. "Euphorbia marginata"

Thanks - very close, and given what you had to go on, excellent. The one I am looking for does not have the varigated leaves. I took a few pictures that may help.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pictures of the white poinsetta

I Googled 'Euphorbia marginata' and see I didn't pay close enough attention to details. Several of my neighbors have plants like the ones you posted pictures of, and I've been blithely assuming they were "Snow on the Mountain". Guess it's time for more research.

Perhaps Euphorbia leucophylla?
