Spurges are generally quite a distinctive family. They almost give the appearance of not having flowers and technically they have not! The green 'petals' are called bracts and the stamens and anther are in the centre of these. Spurges need bare ground and some are vigorous weeds in gardens and hunted down whilst others are specifically grown as garden flowers!
