Cushion Spurge, Euphorbia Polychroma, is a mounding, clump-forming perennial which typically grows in a dome shape. It has clusters of poinsettia-like flowers, although the flower cymes are not showy, they are subtended by long-lasting, bright sulphur yellow bracts, which cover the plant and provide quite a show. It blooms so long that you can enjoy its bright yellow flowers for weeks.

The red fruit produced in late summer pops off the plant and are projected several feet, and under ideal conditions, may self sow!

Cushion Spurge prefers dry, well-drained soils in full sun, and appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. However, clumps tend to open up and lose their attractive cushion shape in too much shade. It may rot in wet or heavy clay soils.

The plant gets its common name from the cushion-like, dome-shaped growth habit it forms. Use in front to middle of borders, masses, or large rock gardens.
