Flowering Spurge (Leaf Whorls)

Photo of flowering spurge leaf whorls around branching points

The leaves of flowering spurge can be eye-catching. They're sessile, narrowing toward base, ovate, with smooth edges. Leaves on the lower parts of the stems are alternate. Leaves at the branching points are in whorls (as shown here). Leaves in inflorescence are opposite.
