Chameleon-Like Foliage
Lime-green flower bracts adorn foliage from late spring into summer. The everchanging festive foliage ranges from wine-red newer growth to multi-toned hues of olive-green. Cooler temps bring super dark foliage for striking combinations. Great for water-wise gardens. Euphorbia Minerís Merlot flaunts a vigorous mounded habit that remains dense. Persistent lime-green bracts add to its colorful extravaganza. With foliage this dramatic, who needs flowers? Heat and drought tolerant and deer resistant too!

Euphorbia General Information

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. *Note: Milky sap from broken stems can be a skin irritant for some. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Euphorbia Plant Care

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 mid-spring every 3- 5 years. Damaged stems can be cut off in spring.
