Grow Euphorbia x martini in well-drained soil in full sun to dappled shade, such as in a gravel garden, where it can gradually spread to form a low, weed smothering carpet. The flowers persist until summer, gradually fading to pale-green. Cut back to the ground before the first frosts.

Always wear gloves when working with euphorbias. The milky sap is a skin irritant.
