Cushion Spurge Growing and Maintenance Tips

Extremely drought tolerant once established and grows best in a moist to average soil, in full sun to partial shade. Trim plants back to about 10 cm after flowering to promote a flush of new leaves. Caution: wear gloves while pruning this plant. The milky sap may severely irritate the skin and eyes and may cause severe discomfort if ingested.
