Features

notes

Euphorbia characias Black Pearl is a shrubby evergreen spurge from the Mediterranean that provides year round interest. Showy heads of lime green, cup-shaped bracts with black eyes with yellow centres appear from late winter and last well into summer. It is a short-lived perennial, but readily seeds.

Insights

The Mediterranean Spurge is naturally heat and drought tolerant. Plant this elegant, architectural plant in beds and borders as a contrast in foliage form and texture. It is equally at home in a contemporary minimalist or gravel garden.
