at Digging Dog

Euphorbia

Milkwort

Named after Euphorbus, physician to the king of Mauritania, this robust, sun-loving genus includes the familiar Poinsettia and is over 1600 species strong. Most species have a poisonous milky sap and softly colored bracts that surround subtly defined flowers. Autumn watches their narrow green leaves turn shades of red, orange and yellow.

This choice Euphorbia hybrid between nicaeensis and seguieriana subsp. niciciana is relatively unknown. Crowned by yellow-green flower heads, the attractive, blue-gray linear foliage is densely arranged in a compact and bushy evergreen mound. A backdrop of Cistus ‘Little Gem’ with Geranium ‘Orion’ creates a pleasing contrast to its pale pointed leaves and glowing blooms.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 18" high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

Our favorite plant this week - We love Echinops 'Blue Glow' for its uniquely shaped flowers in the border or a cut arrangement. Intensely blue, the surreal-looking globes of this Echinops perch on stalks lined with elegant, jagged-edged gray-green foliage. Backlit by the late afternoon sun and planted en masse, ‘Blue Glow’s flowers seem to float amidst spiky Muhlenbergia rigens and the dark domes of Angelica gigas. Echinops 'Blue Glow'
