Euphorbia characias

Euphorbia characias 'Dwarf'

The big, wondrous chartreuse flower heads of Euphorbia characias, but on a dwarf variety that grows to only 2.5’ high & wide, fitting well even in the foreground of your beds & so useful for color creativity! The flowers are just as big as the full-sized version, to 16” tall x 10” wide – super showy! Perfect for parking strips where it won’t get bumped into. Plant in sweeps for a real show stopper. SUPER EASY, drought tolerant & not fussy about soil, it’s deer & gopher resistant! Self-sows (deadhead if you don’t want the extra volunteers!). When deadheading, cut the entire stem to the base. Provide some shade in hotter areas. Like all Euphorbias, the sap of this plant can be TOXIC to varying degrees. Be sure to protect your eyes, skin & NEVER ingest!
