Gophers have been a scourge of my garden for six years. For some years I trapped them. For two years I took a break, and last year they destroyed four or five good rose plants. So the traps are back; but I want to discourage them from moving in, so euphorbias inhabit one edge of the garden bordering on wild gopher territory. They tolerate very dry soil and bright sun, growing when conditions are favorable. Interesting foliage colors. "If gophers are a scourge, plant spurge." Result: Gophers ate them.
