Bright soft-leaved shrub, neat in size and colourful. In cooler months they provide gentle grey-green backdrops to showier plants, and in warmer ones they turn showy themselves, flowering in lime green columns and turning their leaves and stems a soft red. Cold-hardy pretty much everywhere, and on free-draining soil, very easy to grow. The Euphorbia family is possibly the strangest of all plant families - it includes the Christmas poinsettia, crown of thorns, snowflake bush, giant cacti and tiny spiny golfball plants, as well as many variations of these lovely herbaceous garden spurges.
