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'.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Euphorbia 'Tasmanian Tiger' PP15,715.
