Notes:

This plant was seen standing alone in a drainage ditch in Lincoln, NE. It consisted of a single slender stalk lined with solid green leaves. At the top of the main stalk, it divided into three stems pointing outward, equi-distant from each others. At the end of each stem were tiny white flowers surrounded by numerous green leaves lined with a thick white banding. The coloring combination was very striking. A local Earl May Center thought they might be a Nebraska wildflower.

    Thank you for this information. This was driving us crazy trying to identify. It’s a very striking plant, but we weren’t sure if it was something to move into our garden or if it might be poisonous.

    Looks like snow on the mountain (Euphorbia marginata). Best wishes! http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=EUMA8
