Euphorbia polychroma ‘Lacy’

Variegated Cushion Spurge

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.208.330

The Chrome or Cushion Spurge is a popular perennial for spring display. This selection has unusual grey-green leaves edged in cream. Even the flower bracts have cream and green variegation instead of the usual chrome yellow. Excellent for edging, in the rock garden, or in containers. Unusual for cutting. Plants may be divided in fall or early spring. Shearing the plant by half in early summer will maintain a nice mounding form. In hot summer regions this might benefit from some afternoon shade CAUTION: skin and eye irritant/toxic if eaten.
