This is a highly architectural plant with evergreen foliage topped by a huge dome of bright golden-green flowers, which last for months. It revels in well-drained conditions, and like many euphorbias enjoys hot dry positions. It looks most at home in the company of other plants that enjoy dry sun, such as rosemary, ballota, and purple sage, its natural companions in a wild Mediterranean habitat. The plant also teams well with daffodils. Alternatively plant in groups to add drama to rock and gravel gardens. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

I love this Euphorbia - I have 5 plants in a lightly shaded border and they look amazing from early spring till at least mid June when they are in flower. I get lots of compliments from passers-by as the huge limegreen flowerheads are eye-catching and very attractive. In hot direct sun, they are less lush but still look good, just for a shorter period. For the rest of the year the Euphorbia's in my lightly shaded border look lush and almost tropical! Easy to maintain and prolific self seeders!
