Euphorbia corollata L. is the correct and accepted scientific name for the Flowering Spurge. The species and genus were named and described by Carl von Linnaeus in the first edition of Species Plantarum in 1753.
Plants of the World Online lists 1,978 species of Euphorbia (as of 3-22-20 when I am updating this page). The genus is a member of the Euphorbiaceae Family with a total of 227 genera. Those numbers are likely to change periodically.
The distribution map above of Euphorbia corollata is from Plants of the World Online. Areas in green are where the species is native and purple where it has been introduced. The map on the USDA Plants Database for North Aerica is similar but also includes Florida.

Sorry, but this page is still under construction. I should have it finished by March 30, 2020. Please check out the links at the bottom of the page.
I have enjoyed photographing and learning about the many wildflowers growing on the farm and other areas. My farm is in Windsor, Missouri in Pettis County (Henry County is across the street and Benton and Johnson aren’t far away). I have grown over 500 different plants and most have pages listed on the right side of the blog. I am not an expert, botanist, or horticulturalist. I just like growing, photographing and writing about my experience. I rely on several websites for ID and a horticulturalist I contact if I cannot figure them out. Wildflowers can be somewhat variable from location to location, so sometimes it gets a bit confusing. If you see I have made an error, please let me know so I can correct what I have written.
I hope you found this page useful and be sure to check the links below for more information. They were written by experts and provide much more information. Some sites may not be up-to-date but they are always a work in progress. If you can, I would appreciate it if you would click on the “Like” below and leave a comment. It helps us bloggers stay motivated. You can also send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would enjoy hearing from you especially if you notice something is a bit whacky.
NOTE: Plants of the World Online is the most up-to-date database. It is very hard for some to keep with name changes these days so you may find a few discrepancies between the websites. Just be patient. Hopefully, someday they will be in harmony. 🙂
