Flower Color: Light Green

Mediterranean Spurge

Genus: Euphrobia Characias

These evergreen flowering perennial shrubs are compact, growing to a height of about three feet. Most varieties feature blue green vegetation with dense chartreuse flower clusters appearing in early spring and continuing through mid-summer. Some varieties can be found with purple leaves and flowers. Once established, Mediterranean Spurges can get by with very little supplementary water. The plants can take full sun or partial shade and do best in well draining soil conditions.
