This beautiful flower is botanically known as Euphorbia flugens. It is apart of the Euphorbia family, So it falls into the same family as Dogeye Euphobia. Euphorbia has a milky sap when cut. Upon arrival of this flower, or any Euphorbia, give them a fresh cut and then dip in quick dip, (it’s also known by other florists that you can sear the stems with a flame) to stop the bleeding of the milky sap, this prevents dehydration. Be cautious when placing the Euphorbia in the same arrangement with other flowers for the sap may hurt the other flowers. The sap may also irritate sensitive skin. Vase life lasts up to 7 to 10 days. It comes in colors of oranges white and red. Please ask your sales representative for this weeks availability.
