Leather Leaf Spurge Growing and Maintenance Tips

Tolerating dry, shade conditions, they grow best in a moist to average soil, in full sun to partial shade. In deep shade, foliage may remain greener and take on a stretched appearance. Flowers appear on old growth only. Should only be pruned very lightly in the spring to maintain a tidy habit  Caution: wear gloves while pruning this plant, the milky sap may severely irritate the skin and eyes and can cause severe discomfort if ingested.
