‘Chameleon’ is a selection of Euphorbia dulcis, a species sometimes known as “sweet spurge,” though it is definitely not edible. It is ornamental, producing bushy, 12- to 18-inch-tall clumps of foliage that emerges a rich burgundy in spring. The leaves usually age to a purplish green by the time the not-particularly-showy blooms appear in summer. I highly recommend cutting the entire plant back to about 2 inches above the ground when the blooms appear: That will get rid of the faded leaves, encourage a flush of colorful new growth, and prevent self-sowing too. Finding the right spot for the plants can be tricky. They are usually most vigorous and colorful in full sun but may also thrive in light shade, thought the foliage color may be less intense there. I found it worked out well to let my original plants self-sow for the first few years, so they could put themselves where they were happiest, and then enjoy them there. The seedlings vary a bit in foliage color, but all had at least some purple. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.
