Euphorbia characias 'Glacier Blue'


Euphorbia characias 'Glacier Blue' is the best variegated spurge with blue leaves edged in white.

Euphorbia characias 'Glacier Blue' has evergreen, cream-edged, blue gray foliage and cream flowers and bracts with blue gray striping on stems that rise above the foliage to 18 inches high. A more vigorous variegated option than 'Tasmanian Tiger' which requires more heat. Great in pots or in the middle or front of the border. Flowering lasts for months from early spring to early summer. Cut back each flowering stalk to the base when the bracts begin to whither. Remember: the stems that have not flowered yet will be your flowers for next spring.
