I recently purchased a Euphorbia Chameleon. Can you tell me how large it gets, where to plant it outside, and what type of flowers it will have when it blooms?

Euphorbia dulcis chameleon is a recent introduction with an attractive rounded form, handsome purple foliage flecked with green, and small yellow green flower bracts in late-spring-summer. Otherwise known as Spurge, (which makes it sound like a contagious infliction), Euphorbia makes attractive border plants. Expect yours to grow to about 14" high. Although there are many forms only hardy to zones 7-8, there are still a good number hardy to zone 6 (your zone) and Chameleon is one of those. Provide full sunshine and average, but well draining soil.
