Silver green goddess!
If you’ve tried your hand at landscape design, then you know that it is the mix of color, form and function that makes a garden truly sing. Too many plants with the same shape or foliage style, too much of the same color, too much of the same ol’, same ol’ and you could end up with a perfectly nice garden. But why settle for a ‘perfectly nice’ garden when you could have a perfectly stunning garden!
Silver Spurge (Euphorbia rigida) is like an exotic parrot in a cage of pigeons – it can’t help but stand out. This evergreen perennial has narrow, pointed steely-blue leaves that probably don’t look like anything else in your garden. Which is a good thing. It is perfect to add a different shape and form to your landscape. It grows up to 3 feet tall and wide and its edgy geometry adds rich texture when planted next to strappy grasses or thick-leaved ornamentals.
The silvery blue color that gives it its name is also a great compliment to just about every other color. It brings a coolness to hot colors and a warmth to cool ones. It harmonizes the diverse shades evergreens, from hunter green boxwoods to blue-green pines.
In addition to the unique form and color, it also has dozens of oh-so-tiny flower bracts in a pretty chartreuse yellow that draws your eye from across the garden all summer long.
