Spurges (genus Euphorbia) are a large and variable worldwide genus of more than 1,500 plants that are mostly shrubby, herbaceous succulents. They vary from flat creepers to shrubs and trees. Some even look like cactus plants.

They afford an acrid, often poisonous milky juice, and some of them are armed with thorns. Most plants of the spurge genus yield powerful emetic and cathartic products.
