Save this Euphorbia for shade, especially in those difficult to grow spots we all have. It's a spreading perennial meaning it will spread via underground rhizome and form a colony. It also likes to spread by self seeding so it definitely belongs in the playful section!

It's useful for vases as a highly complementary foliage filler but sear cut stems in boiling water first to seal the cut ends and wear gloves or wash hands to avoid the milky sap becoming an irritant.
