EUPHORBIA MYRSINITES
EUPHORBIA MYRSINITES
PLANTS: PEUMY
A useful foliage and flowering plant. The spiralling leaves are so symmetrically formed, they look like they belong on a reptile rather than a plant. Flowers start acid green then fade to a dusty pink in late winter and spring. Cut old flowers off at the base to maintain habit and stop their incidental spread.
