Spurge

Spurge (Euphorbia species)  

A number of Euphorbia species are highly invasive, can chemically inhibit other vegetation, and can induce blisters in humans and animals. Leafy spurge, a designated Noxious Weed, has tiny yellow/green flowers on heart-shaped yellowish bracts. Cypress spurge, which has been reported on Salt Spring, is toxic to people and livestock.
