Cultural Notes: Very low water requirements. This variety is dry tolerant once established. Plant in most soil types. Requires good drainage if receiving regular irrigation or in areas of high rainfall. Euphorbias do not like wet feet. Feed in spring with a slow release fertiliser. Pruning generally not required although cutting back spent flower stems to base will encourage a bushier habit. Take care to avoid skin contact with the milky sap as it can be irritating to some - wear gloves and dispose of cuttings. CAUTION - Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant.
