Euphorbia cotinifolia - tree form
Euphorbia cotinifolia (Caribbean Copper Plant) - In our climate this is a deciduous tropical shrub that is often 8 to 10 feet tall but can grow upwards to 18 feet tall and be trained as a small tree. Beautiful coppery reddish purple color. Flowering occurs in late spring to mid-summer and while the tiny flowers at branch tips are not showy, the small cream to pale yellow bracts stand out attractively out against the red foliage. Plant in a well-drained soil & takes full sun to part shade.
