Dwarf spurge is a compact herbaceous evergreen perennial that grows in upright mounds.  The fleshy lance-like foliage with blue-green leaves with a reddish flush on new growth and gains a purple hue in winter.   Dense bottle-brush columns of yellow flowers tip the stems in late spring into summer,  attracting bees and butterflies. Best shape in full sun and dry, well-drained soils.  Broken stems have a milky white sap that can cause significant skin or eye irritation.  Do not plant near where children or pets play.
