The unusual foliage colour and flowers combine for a knockout combination. And for all the math/gardening fans out there, the spiralling of the leaves follows the Fibonacci sequence that is so special in nature. The snaking stems of blue green foliage are crowned from late winter with chartreuse and gold "flowers" that last for many months. The flowers open on second year stems.
Blue Spurge holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so it can be relied upon to perform well.

Euphorbia myrsinites will grow in any well drained soil and needs little in the way of care - hot dry spots are not a problem. Water to establish then only if rainfall is low, they are dry tolerant once established and prosper in a sunny spot.

Try Euphorbia myrsinites in rock gardens, as edging, in containers or hanging baskets.

Common names for this amazing plant include Donkey Tail Spurge, Myrtle Spurge, Creeping Spurge, Glaucus Spurge and Blue Spurge.
