Other Common Names:
The popularity of Snowflake around Brisbane becomes obvious in winter when the shrubs produce their masses of white "flowers". This plant is in the same genus at the familiar poinsettia and the plants are similar in many ways.
Prune back hard at least once after flowering. However, it's important to stop pruning by the end of summer because it needs to prepare for the next winter's flowering.
Like its relative the Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima), the lengthening nights of autumn signal the plant to initiate the production of flowers. If the darkness is interrupted during the critical period, flowering could be disturbed. Therefore, avoid planting Snowflake under streetlights, security lights etc.
