Euphorbia myrsinities Description

Eye-catching, drought proof, ground cover with spirals of soft dusky blue foliage lasting over 3 seasons. Thrives in hot dry places, and adaptable to poor soils. Succulent looking perennial, the low growing blue foliage appears in whorls growing up to 8" tall, and topped with globes of lemon yellow flowers in late spring. Needs very little water to look beautiful, thriving in heat & humidity and easy to grow in those tough, sun-soaked spots where little else will grow. Give it full sun, and good drainage. Low growing perennial offers great texture and color for the front of the perennial garden.
