Euphorbia characias ‘Glacier Blue’


Evergreen Spurge

USDA Zone: 7-9

Plant number: 1.208.280


This outstanding selection has evergreen leaves of grey-blue, strongly edged with creamy white, forming a midsized bushy mound. Conical flower heads appear in spring, made up of creamy bracts with a green eye. In June, prune entire spent flowering stems right back to near the base of the plant -– new ones will form during the summer. A plant for all seasons, particularly in mild winter regions. In colder areas this may be grown in a container and brought indoors to a cool, bright spot for the winter. A sport of ‘Tasmanian Tiger’ found at and introduced by Skagit Gardens in Washington State. Said to have much better vigour. CAUTION: skin and eye irritant/toxic if eaten. USPP#19027: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
