Few plants thrive in poor dry soil in shade, but this euphorbia thrives in the difficult conditions commonly found under big trees. The plant spreads by underground runners, until eventually the evergreen leaves form a low weed smothering carpet over the ground. Upright spikes of lime green flowers emerge in spring and persist through early summer. The bright flowers show up well above the dark glossy foliage. In better conditions it makes a good all-year-round evergreen background to woodland plants or other shade lovers. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

can i take root cuttings from a euphorbia?
You rarely need to do this as so many little shoots come up around established plants. Just pull one gently and it will come up with roots intact. You may need to cut it from parent plant beneath the soil.
Ooooh No its terrible stuff !!! pops up all over the place. if you chop any off it oozes white sap .... as i remember the sap is quite nasty stuff.
The sap can cause severe irritation to the eyes, leaving you with temporary partial sight
