A compact, shade-loving, spreading euphorbia that has long-lasting, lime-green flowers in late spring above rosettes of glossy, dark green leaves. Amygdaloides Robbiae is a valuable plant for difficult areas of dry shade, particularly under trees. Being evergreen and suckering it also makes attractive groundcover.
This is a fast-growing plant which left unchecked can become invasive, romping through areas of a small garden.

Soil: moist, well-drained garden soil

In autumn cut back the faded flower stems, avoiding new ones. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant.
