Euphorbia myrsinites is an evergreen perennial with a low trailing habit. The powdery blue angular foliage forms dense whorls along the stems, the leaves are fleshy giving the appearance of a succulent plant. In late Spring and Summer dense heads of yellow flowers up to 10cm across are produced at the ends of the shoots.
Euphorbia myrsinites will need cutting back to the base when flowers have finished to encourage new growth. Best grown in full sun and a free draining soil. Always wear gloves when pruning Euphorbia plants to protect skin from the milky sap. Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
