Euphorbia myrsinites


Donkey-tail Spurge

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.208.050


The Donkey-tail Spurge is an evergreen, succulent perennial. It makes sprawling or trailing stems of spiraling grey-blue leaves, with clusters of chartreuse-yellow flowers appearing through the spring months. This will grow in most any sunny area, but does particularly well in hot, dry sites with poor soil. Looks terrific in a rock garden or rock wall. Also worth trying in tubs or mixed containers. Interplant this with Veronica 'Georgia Blue', for a riot of yellow and sapphire blue. Inclined to self seed prolifically: remove unwanted seedlings as they appear. As a result of it's self seeding, some jurisdictions have banned this plant as a noxious weed. This is not usually a problem in regions with significant rainfall, but check local restrictions before planting. Heritage Perennials has voluntarily ceased producing this plant as a result. CAUTION: skin and eye irritant/toxic if eaten: wear gloves when handling.
