Yes, the sap is an irritant. I still give this Euphorbia a positive since it is doing what I wanted, which is colonize dry, part shade under a cedar tree. It gets a gradient of hot southern sun in summer, but it's within the drip line of the tree. In one growing season since being planted from the nursery they have "rounded out" nicely, and sent out a few small plant-lets in the immediate area. Any divisions will be a surgical procedure however, no casual wiping at the face allowed.
