These are stunning shrubs - mine unfortunately had to have a rather severe trim earlier this year after all the rain, so it hasn't come back to its former glory yet.

They liked to be cut stimulates growth. Beautiful photo!

Nelke- this one is stunning when it turns white over winter. For the rest of the year it's not very interesting at all - just green leaves.

I've never heard of this one, or of a white Euphorbia. It is a shrub, Bernieh ?

Sorry, I should have checked where you are, Bernieh. No wonder I've never heard of it. LOL

That's OK Vincentdunne - Yes this is a shrub and it puts on a wonderful display of creamy, petal-like bracts during autumn and winter, from April to July and then loses its leaves for a short period. From spring it is green for the rest of the year. It's closely related to the poinsettia.

Thanks, Bernieh, I don't think I will bother trying it in this climate!!
