Euphorbia

Milkwort

Named after Euphorbus, physician to the king of Mauritania, this robust, sun-loving genus includes the familiar Poinsettia and is over 1600 species strong. Most species have a poisonous milky sap and softly colored bracts that surround subtly defined flowers. Autumn watches their narrow green leaves turn shades of red, orange and yellow.

A sweet melding of purplish new tips in spring, sulphur yellow flowers and narrow, curvy-edged leaves with a bluish tint creates an exceptionally tidy, low growing mound. A delectable addition to any border, pair this carefree, long-lived Euphorbia with Brunnera or Omphalodes.

Size: 12"–16" high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
