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.

Evoking images of viridescent dragon scales, pointed blue-green leaves create a compact deer proof assemblage that’s infused with reddish purple tinges. This tidy-looking robust Milkwort shoulders summer blooming chartreuse flower heads nearly one foot across. Consorts such as Panicum ‘Shenandoah’ and Eupatorium ‘Gateway’ accentuate its colorful hues.

Size: 2' 0"–2-1/2' high x 3' 0" wide. 6/7
