Characteristics : This is a very small, annual cycle spurge. It lives in the wasteland in garrigues (Mediterranean woodland), and can be recognised by its linear leaves and its seeds covered in small warts. It can be mistaken for many other small herbs in these pastures. To be sure, we have to break a leaf, and see the typical white latex coming out, and see the ornamentations of its seeds.
