Daily Flower Candy: Euphorbia rigida ‘Chris Brickell’

The Euphorbias are a wonderful group of plants – varied, yet unmistakable with their leafy stems and typically acid-yellow flower heads. A new discovery for me last year was this low growing form of Euphorbia rigida named ‘Chris Brickell’. It’s similar to Euphorbia myrsinities but with pointed, glaucous blue leaves flushed maroon at the tips. Beautiful jewelled with raindrops or simply reflecting bright sunlight.
