Euphorbia cotinifolia has colorful leaves. Although this plant is evergreen in mild climates, it loses its leaves if the temperature drops below 35 degrees Fahrenheit, and frost could damage the plant. Height can vary from a shrub (up to 15 feet tall), or a small tree (15 to 30 feet tall). You can grow in a container and keep smaller so it can be brought inside in the winter. The sap is poisonous, make sure to use protection if pruning.
