This hybrid between E. amygdaloides and E. characias has sturdy, upright stems and thick, narrow leaves resembling those of E. characias, but their beautiful reddish purple shading when young and the overall smaller plant size suggests its other parent. The flower clusters are elevated well above the foliage and are several inches long, with bright green to chartreuse leaves and bracts. It is hardy to 0 degrees F. or less. Milky sap from cut stems of all Euphorbia is toxic and irritating to skin. Avoid planting near paths or places where children or pets play.
