Euphorbia Polychroma Cushion Spurge gives visual interest through the seasons with leaves turning from yellow to bright green to red as the seasons change from spring to summer to fall. Cushion Spurge gets it name because it grows in a rounded mound that resembles a cushion. Cushion Spurge performs beautifully as an edging along a formal walk or winding garden path, as a rock garden or border specimen, planted on top of retaining walls, or massed in moderate expanses as a general ground cover plant. In the cooler zones the plant will do fine in full sun, but in southern zones the plant will prefer some afternoon shade in order to perform its best. Euphorbia Cushion Spurge is not for wet soils or for soils that are over fertilized. It is very drought tolerant, but it does not handle foot traffic well.
