Euphorbia rigida

Euphorbia rigida Euphorbia rigida

This is one of my favorite Euphorbias – plus it’s a cinch to grow! The foliage of Euphorbia rigida is a beautiful blue-green & consists of pointy leaves spiraling around upright stems. The flowers, which occur in late Winter through Spring, are a cheerful lime green that contrasts nicely with the blue foliage. The plant grows to about 2’ tall & 3’ wide. After the flowers are spent prune out old stems to make way for the new growth. Like all Euphorbias, the sap of this plant can be TOXIC to varying degrees. Be sure to protect your eyes, skin & NEVER ingest! However, that same milky sap makes it a great deer resistant plant! From areas of the Mediterranean.
