Roadsides, railroads, shores, fields, dry barren places and disturbed ground; a lawn and garden weed. Collected as early as 1837 by the First Survey, and at a number of places throughout the state in the 19th century, so either very early introduced or, as usually assumed, native in Michigan. This is the most common prostrate Euphorbia in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula.
