Description

Euphorbia (Cushion Spurge)   yoo-FOR-bee-uh

Cushion Spurge is an herbaceous flowering perennial that grows in a dome or cushion shape and is typically used as a ground cover. The plant does well in sun to light shade and prefers loose, dry, light-textured, well-drained sandy to gravelly soil. Afternoon shade is beneficial during southern summers, but too much shade can cause the plant to become leggy and lose the cushion shape it is known for.
