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.
Small, whorled linear leaves, bathed in tranquil bluish celadon hues, are pointed and narrow, yet slightly broader and not as closely arranged as those of ‘Dean’s Hybrid’. A long lasting day glow display of bright lime-green flower heads and wine-infused older stems bring dramatic elements to the low tailored evergreen mound that needs minimal water and braves the deer. Grateful for a well-drained niche, ‘Limewall’s effulgent blooms enliven perennials such as Saponaria ‘Max Frei’ and Origanum libanoticum.
Size: 12" high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 7.
Euphorbia ‘Limewall’ (P-1753)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
