Speedie-do be careful with the Euphorbia- I tried some about 5 years ago, had not heard about the "rash". IT WAS NOT A RASH IT WAS GREAT WEEPING SORES on my hands where I contacted the sap, and where I had touched my cheek. They lasted about 3 weeks. I am afraid to try any more although some are gorgeous.

Mlm, thank you for that, I will be SURE to wear my gloves for this!!! (I'm not normally a glove-wearer). Thankfully I've got 3 good pairs, so I'll be able to throw the 'infected' pair into a pail of hot soapy water right after handling the Euphorbia, then still have 2 other pairs available on the sidelines just in case. And I'll be sure to wear an extra long-sleeved shirt, too. Thank you again! =)
