Description

Family Euphorbiaceae
Originating from the Mediterranean.

  • Instant Mediterranean style with tall stems bearing silver-grey foliage.
  • Brilliant lime green flowers are borne over a long period in summer.
  • Easy to grow, well suited to poor soils and coastal gardens in full sun.

An iconic Mediterranean-style specimen, bold and architectural, with vigorously growing tall stems. The long elliptical leaves are lustrous silver/gun metal grey and crowd the stems in a brush-like formation, being sparser at their base and extremely compact near the tips, below the flowers.

The brilliant lime green globes of many individual flowers appear over a long period in summer at the tips of every stem and make a fantastic coordinated display with the foliage. They are loved by all pollinators. The outstanding foliage and flowers take the form of a soft rounded and billowing shrub which serves as a stunning contrast to spiky plants, making this a must-have plant for Mediterranean hot gardens and coastal planting schemes.

It has a continual cycle of display; as its long-lasting flowering stems mature and become lax, they can be removed to reveal a new flush of healthy bright silver/green leaves emerging in a tightly compact mound. Care should be taken when working with the plant as the sap is an irritant to the skin and should not be allowed to splash into or around the eyes.

Easy to grow in all soil types, preferring sandy well-drained conditions in full sun. Height and spread after 2-5 years 1.5m x 1.5m.
