Euphorbia variety

West Somerset, England Eng

Please does anyone know the name of this Euphorbia? It is small, only up to 5" in height, and has red stems. The leaves are dark green and 'wiry' around the stems. It spreads well.

On plant Euphorbia




Hi Spritz smallest Euphorbia I know is E.myrsinites that grows no more than 6" tall and scrambles rather than more upright varieties.

Thanks Bonkers - I'll look it up in my trusty RHS A-Z! I got it at an Open Garden two years ago - with no plant label. Naughty, naughty! I liked it, though, so it came home with me...

On this occasion, Bonkers, I think you are wrong! I think it might be E. cyparissias. No picture in HS books but description matches.

How do I say thanks?
