Did you know?
The botanical name Euphorbia is derived from Euphorbos, the Greek physician from the 1st century AD. In 1753, the botanist and taxonomist Carl Linnaeus gave the entire genus the name Euphorbia in honour of this doctor.
And yes, that's right, euphorbias are not cacti, even though many of them look pretty much like a cactus.
