Euphorbia nicaeensis-Honey-flowered Spurge

Propagating Euphorbia nicaeensis or Honey-flowered Spurge is done in the spring by digging up the clump and dividing the crown then transplanting, but give it some shade then move to the sun after it becomes established in the fall. There are many varieties of Euphorbia but this one prefers a hot sunny location, others prefer moisture. Its leaves are tinted blue and its blooms are fragrant, bloom late summer to early fall, reach a height of 18"-23," and are good as cut flowers. This variety is evergreen, deer resistant, and is hardy to Zone 6. Trim back the plant in the spring to freshen up the plant.
