Euphorbia mellifera

Euphorbia mellifera

 - comm. Honey Spurge

A majestic, large euphorbia that makes a dramatic statement in any garden that will thrive in a sheltered, sunny spot. It has stiff stems strung with layers of luminous green leaves with a white rib down the centre. Excellent as a foliage variety, but the bonus in spring are the small, deliciously honey-scented, bronze-tinted flowers.
