Notes for Identification: 1. Rosea firestick plant (euphorbia tirucalli) grows in dry areas, and is often used to feed cattle or as hedging2. Contact with skin causes severe irritation, redness and a burning sensation; contact with the eyes may cause severe pain, and in some cases temporary blindness for several days. Symptoms may worsen over 12 hours. For eye exposures, flush eyes with fresh, cool water for at least 15 minutes and repeat after a few minutes. Seek medical attention if there is no relief. Over-the-counter anti-histamines may provide relief for some people. If swallowed, it may cause burning to the mouth, lips, and tongue. Deaths have been recorded from swallowing the latex, and anyone swallowing some should seek medical attention3. Stems of 'rosea' are colored (orange and red)and generally leafless, stem color is more vibrant in the winter
