Does anyone know much about this plant (Euphorbia Cyparissias)?

I found some information on Google which states) When broken, cypress spurge, like all spurges, emits a milky sap. Other sources allege that the milky juice of the plant is toxic and causes irritations on contact with the skin.The sap may also irritate the eyes, mouth, and gastro-intestinal tract). I know they sell it in our nurseries here in California. I really love it as it's very attractive and fills in the back area but concerned about the toxicity of the plant.

    It is an Euphorbia Spurge Plant. I have many of these growing in an around my optunia cactus hardy for this area. They will spread by roots popping up everywhere and are good border plants that has the yellow blooms as shown in photo

    These plants are very pretty but can get very large and out of control

    We had a cow who enjoyed a snack of rhubarb leaves (also toxic) but would'nt touch my Euphorbia right next to it. The roots will repel gophers and moles if you're troubled by them.
