The Melon Spurge is a dwarf perennial succulent euphorbia which forms clumps of bulbs up to 12cm wide. Usually a single spineless stem, sometimes branching at the base, rounded leaves are green and purple banded, and flowers are small and yellow to lime rising on long stalks.

A very low maintenance plant, it likes plenty of sun to moderate shade, well-draining soil, and weekly watering in summer. Keep dry in winter. Note that all euphorbias contain a toxic sap so must be handled with care. A slow-grower, this long-lived plant remains content in its position for years. Native to South Africa.

NOTE: Euphorbia’s are for ornamental purposes only. The milky sap can be toxic and can cause adverse reactions if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. Do not ingest. Euphorbias do not typically require pruning or maintenance, but take care when handling.
