I have cypress spurge growing in my garden in the western Maine mountains, and have been able to contain it rather well. But I have never seen mentioned my favorite aspect of this plant. When it blooms in the late spring, it gives off such a strong earthy honey scent, that when the breeze is right I can smell it 100' away! Even the cat will stop to take a sniff!

Hi Liz,
I'm glad you mentioned the scent, I love it! One of the first signs of spring.
And I love the mint colored bloom clusters too.
