Description

Euphorbia myrsinites, Myrtle Spurge is a wonderful evergreen perennial with succulent blue-green leaves arranged in a very sculptural spiral formation. The glaucous foliage contrasts well with the sulphur-yellow flower bracts which sit upright from the sprawling donkey-tail stems.

Like most Euphorbias, Euphorbia myrsinites is very tolerant of poor soils and dry conditions. It does best in full sun in a warm sheltered aspect with a well-drained soil.
