Euphorbia Mellifera (Honey Spurge)

Makes a grand architectural statement

in cold areas) A magnificent, large euphorbia that really makes a dramatic statement in the gar den. It has stiff stems strung with whorls of bright green leaves with a white stripe down the centre and topped in spring, with small, honey-scented, bronze-tinted flowers. This evergreen shrub is grown as much for its foliage a s its deliciously scented flowers and will thrive in a sheltered, sunny spot. I t forms a natural dome shape, and gives structure and an architectual quality to the garden. Or try it as part of an exotic scheme; the luminous-green leaves l ook great with large-leafed plants.
