There are several other varieties with green leaves and white flowers, but at this point, there's not much difference.
Euphorbia hypericifolia also makes a nice houseplant, if you can provide good light. They are starting to use it at Christmastime, paired with another Euphorbia, Poinsettia.
Planting: These are cultivars, so seed is not available. Small plants are widely available in nurseries. They are sensitive to cold, so wait until all danger of frost has past, before planting outside.
Maintenance:Water well, until the plant is acclimated. After that, allow the plant to dry between waterings. Too much water can cause rotting.
No fertilizer is needed, although a little boost in mid-Summer can help keep them going, especially plants in containers.
No deadheading is required. You can pinch young plants to encourage branching and you can trim back plants at any time, to shape or keep their size in check.
