Compact dome-shaped mound of light green foliage blooms continuously thru the entire season with bright red nugget centered chartreuse flowers. Euphorbia Tiny Tim gives an engaging appearance for the front of the border, or a mixed container. Patented.
Euphorbia are related to the Poinsettia. Its outer bracts turn colorful in early summer, then deepen in fall. Valuable for hot dry sites, these Mediterranean natives know how to take the heat. The more sun the deeper the foliage color. Remarkably adaptable.
No special care needed. Can be cut back by a third after flowering to prevent seeding. Does not like to be transplanted once established. Does not usually require division, but if desired the fleshy roots can be divided in midspring every 3- 5 years. Damaged stems can be cut off in spring.
