Euphorbia characias 'Tasmanian Tiger' PP15,715 (Variegated Spurge) - This succulent perennial subshrub has narrow foliage with distinct variegation of green centers with white/cream margins. Growing to 3 feet tall and then topped with broad heads of flowers in summer, that are of the typical chartreuse color but with the bracts also plainly margined with white. A stunning sight especially when combined with bold dark foliage plants like Phormium 'Dark Delight'. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate regularly to occasionally. Hardy to 0-10 degrees F. This plant was a seedling discovered in Sally Johannsohn's garden in Hobart, Tasmania, in 1993. It is sometimes called Euphobia 'Tassie Tiger'.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit.
