String of Stars is a rare sprawling succulent plant with branched stems that bear small green leaves and many white flowers with a red center. It is a deciduous plant that drops all leaves in winter but continues to bloom, hence its common name. It grows beautifully in a hanging basket. Usually in Euphorbias the flowers are much reduced, aggregated into objects called cyathia. In this plant the flowers are prominent and showy. Leaves are small, ovate. String of Stars is native to Mexico, cultivated as a houseplant elsewhere.
