Kef, there are loads of different euphorbias - from the little ones, to the big majestic ones (Chariacas). I even have one called Jimmy Platt whose flowers give off the scent of fresh coffee on a sunny day! Then there is a little one that's almost a succulent, euphorbia myrsinites, that I grew from seed and hangs down over a low wall. Most of them do well in hot, dry conditions - and some are biennial.....there's even a prickly cactus-like one - sorry I can't remember all the names at the moment. Once you get into euphorbias there is a huge range to choose from.
