Upright fleshy stems with whorls of handsome red-stained, mid-green leaves are topped with clusters of long-lasting, red-eyed chartreuse-green flowers in spring. This evergreen spurge looks equally good when not in flower as it forms a compact dome shape. It's perfect for a small sunny border, gravel or coastal garden.

  • Garden care: To promote new shoots remove flower heads in spring after they have flowered. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant.
