  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: light, well-drained garden soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast growing
  • Flowering period: March to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Upright, fleshy stems are clothed with whorls of handsome red-stained, mid-green leaves, which are often covered in fine hairs that create a silvery sheen. These stems are topped with clusters of long-lasting, red-eyed, chartreuse-green flowers in spring and summer. This evergreen spurge is quite variable, but will usually form compact domes that are quite architectural. It's perfect for a small sunny border, gravel or coastal garden.

  • Garden care: To promote new shoots remove flowered stems to their base in spring after the flowers have faded. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
