Euphorbia polychroma Description

Mounded, clump forming, drought proof, sun perennial. Cushion spurge has showy flower bracts, and foliage that stays attractive spring-fall. Cushion spurge thrives in full sun to part shade, and even neglect if planted in well drained soil.  Plant as a specimen, or in a group. Retains good structured mounded form throughout the season.  This carefree hardy perennial compliments many spring flowering bulbs.
