Master Gardener Comments
This large blue-green plant with chartreuse flower bracts is quite showy. It can be used as a specimen or a hedge plant. Can be invasive if not pruned after blooming. Take care when pruning as the white sticky sap (as with all euphorbias) can irritate the skin. Is poisious if ingested. (related to ponsettias)
‘Tasmanian Tiger’ is a little smaller (2’ X 3’) and has variegated foliage.
‘Lambrook gold’ has a purer yellow flower.
