    all I know about it is that the person who gave it to me said that moles/voles don't like it ( I was having a huge problem with them) and it works because I have no voles in large area around these plants. Some of them are 6-8 ' high. I am inquiring about this plant because my one dog seems to be obsessed with them and I need to know if they are poisonous. Thanks

    Gopher's Spurge which is actually a Euphorbia . If you break it, there will be a sticky white sap, which can cause quite a bit of irritation to those sensitive to it. In some climates it can be an invasive plant. I don't think it would be a great idea for your dog to ingest it.

      @360 Sod (Donna Dixson) I THINK I CAN KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL, I HOPE I CAN. THE MOLES ARE MAKING MY WALKWAY DANGEROUS.
