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 Euphorbia have a poisonous milky sap and soft-colored bracts that surround subtly defined flowers. Autumn watches many of their narrow green leaves turn shades of red, orange and yellow.
The sweet melding of purplish new spring tips amid narrow blue-tinged green leaves with ripple-edged margins plus flashy sulphur-yellow bracts distinguishes ‘Candy’s neat low-growing mound. A delectable addition to borders, rock walls and pathways, this carefree long-lived Euphorbia flaunts enticing rosy-red fall color, relishes dry well-drained nooks and tolerates poor soil.
Size: 12" – 15" high x 2-1/2' wide.
