This is an easy, tough, tidy groundcover that lends marvelous texture to rock gardens and is great trailing over rock walls. With spirally arranged leaves, its foot-long blue stems terminate in clusters of lime green flowers in Spring that persist for months. Dead head before it self-sows, as it reseeds easily, and is considered invasive in some parts of the Western US. Drought and heat tolerant, this Euphorbia is very durable, resistant to deer, and bad soil. Euphorbia sap is toxic, and may irritate skin, so be careful when pruning.

Due to Agricultural Restrictions we cannot ship this plant to Colorado or Oregon.
