Spurge 'Tasmanian Tiger'

Euphorbia characias 'Tasmanian Tiger'

'Tasmanian Tiger' one of the Euphorbia family, is a striking silver variegated evergreen perennial that forms a compact clump.

The foliage is silky and velvety to the touch and would make a fabulous addition to any garden looking for unusual colours.

It can be suseptible to frost, so protect with fleece during winter months. A beautiful plant to add to a mixed border that is also ideal for a container. It can take from between 2-5 years to reach maturity.

Tasmanian Tiger is especially effective when in flower when the congested flower heads erupt above the foliage. All parts of the Tasmanian Tiger are highly toxic if ingested.

The sap may cause irritation to skin and eyes.
