Silver Spurge

Silver Spurge

Euphorbia rigida

This shrubby evergreen perennial is native to the Mediterranean. Its long, arching stems are lined with fleshy, gray-green leaves. Broad clusters of chartreuse flowers occur at the branch tips in the winter and early spring. Flowers are followed by small brown seed pods. The stems die back after flowering, leaving a low basal rosette of new foliage. Spent flowers should be removed in late spring. Susceptible to damping off, this plant should be planted in soil with good drainage.
