Plant for ID:  Please ID this. The leaves turn white in winter, I was told.
Date: 21 DEC, 2012
Location: Vellore, Tamil Nadu
Height – about 6’
Leaves – Green and changing to white
Flowers – Tiny yellow ones
This is Euphorbia leucocephala....
Yes Euphorbia leucocephala
A beautiful ornamental when in bloom.
Lovely pics ... the white are the bracts of this white poinsettia...
this is a very popular plant now for the last decade for gardeners who are bored with the red poinsettas... :) ... or those that want to grow all red, white green etc poinsettias...
the leaves, like any plant are green, usually situated below the flowers along the stalk of the branch.
And IN WINTER, leaves turn yellow and then wither into brown before falling off in winter.
Attaching one of my pictures which clearly shows this phenomenon...
Yes ..., your pics clearly show the transformation.

Euphorbia For ID : Kenya : 05OCT16 : AK-4 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)
A small plant seen in Kenya.
Cultivated, garden plant.
Looks very close to Euphorbia leucocephala
This appears to be Euphorbia leucocephala Lotsy, native of Central America, now cultivated in many tropical countries.
However, you may compare it with the attached photograph. Attachments (1)
Many thanks for the id. My guess was correct after all.
I was confused since these plants were quite small, in a flower bed.
