Does anyone on here grow Euphorbia heterophylla??

Or have it growing wild on their land?

I used to have this plant, and it was a wonderful bedding plant/container plant/cut flower. Unfortunately, I lost the seed I had harvested one year due to a family health crisis, I left them in my greenhouse to dry, didn't get back to them, and voles or mice actually took the seed, which surprised me since I thought they would be toxic.

I've been searching for a seed source for several years. Bought some and paid a lot of $ from a seed company in Europe, and it proved to not even be true to species, or at least true to type -- was very weedy, had very narrow, almost willow-like leaves, and absolutely NO red on the bracts.

I would LOVE to have some seeds in the autumn, and would be happy to reciprocate with a trade of some sort.

I've got some. Shoot me an email with your address and I'll collect some seed for you if you want. I'm near Dallas if that makes any difference in the seed.
