Myrtle Spurge is an invasive ornamental plant, popular in xeriscapes and rock gardens. Not only is this non-native weed threatening our foothills and national forests, but it is also a public health threat. Caution must be taken to avoid skin and eye irritation from contact with the plant sap. Also, if sap is ingestived, it can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
