Euphorbia polychroma

Euphorbia polychroma
Synonym(s) Euphorbia epithymoides
Common name cushion spurge
Family euphorbiaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Flowers yellow bracts (spring)
Size 12-18"
Light sun-part shade

Forms a domed clump of attractive foliage, turning red in fall. The actual flowers aren't showy, but the long-lasting yellow bracts are.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
