Euphorbia lagascae Spreng (Euphorbiaceae) is a species characteristic to the Iberic Peninsula and Corsica. It is an annual plant with smooth, light green stems, about 20–60 cm tall, which flowers in early spring and fruits in April and May, depending upon climate.
Origin of the botanical (Latin) name Euphorbia Euphorbia became the official botanical name for the genus when Carolus Linnaeus published it in the first edition of his book Species Plantarum, in 1753 (p. 450).
Flowers are of one sex, and male and female flowers are usually borne on the same plant. Petals are rarely present. Flowers of the largest genus, Euphorbia, are in cup-shaped clusters called cyathia, each of which seems to be a single female flower but actually consists of a single pistil surrounded by several male flowers, each of which has a single stamen.
