A stunning late-flowering, semi-evergreen Euphorbia with open sprays of intense lime-green flowers held on red-bronze stems in late summer to early autumn. The foliage is handsome too, with strappy grey-green leaves held in whorls on the upright stems. This magnificent perennial forms a natural mound bringing all-year structure to the garden. In the fading autumn light it glows and looks fabulous among late-flowering perennials and grasses or with spiky plants. It is drought tolerant once established.

  • Garden care: After flowering remove the faded flower-heads. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant. Euphorbias do not like waterlogged soil.
