Variability in leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula L.)



Variability in leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula L.)



Proceedings North Central Weed Control Conference (Vol. 35): 13-14



The identification of N. American leafy spurge is discussed. It was thought that the plant was introduced from Europe but several European insect pests of Euphorbia esula failed to establish on the N. American species. In the present study, leafy spurge plants were collected from 36 locations in the northern USA and Canada and 2 from Austria. Twenty-eight morphological characters were recorded for 4 plants from each source. Many of the characters showed considerable variation.
