    This large and handsome spurge is a cross between E. mellifera and E. stygiana. It has an architectural, evergreen form, which offers year-round interest with its stiff stems clothed in narrow, dark green leaves, each with a distinctive, creamy-white midrib. Then, from late spring, these stems are topped with clusters of honey-scented, yellowy-brown flowers that fill the surrounding air with their perfume. In late summer small seed pods appear and these add another level of interest.

  • Garden care: In autumn cut back the faded flower stems, avoiding new ones. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant. Remove unwanted seedlings each spring as part of routine border maintenance.
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
