Named after Euphorbus, physician to the King of Mauretania. This hybrid is a cross between Euphorbia mellifera and E.stygiana. Large, evergreen shrub with bright yellowish-green foliage and a white central stripe to the leaf. Honey-scented, yellow-green flowers are produced from late spring to late summer, turning pale brown as they age, followed by yellow-green, berry-like fruit. The leaves turn red in the autumn. Take care when handling Euphorbias as their milky sap can irritate skin.
Grow in well-drained, light soil in full sun.
