From the South of France this Mediterranean beauty has has stems tinged with red, narrow mid-green leaves and eye-catching, acid green bracts. Dark red nectar glands in the centre of the bracts look spectacular from spring to mid-summer. A good choice if you have poor, dry soil in shade, this euphorbia thrives in difficult conditions. It is a rhizomatous plant that spreads by underground runners. The evergreen leaves form a low, weed-smothering carpet over the ground. This variety has dark green foliage with prominent, light-green midribs.
