Beautiful a annual very reminiscent of euphorbia's but without the sticky latex. Its blue green foliage makes a wonderful contrast to most other plants. It produces curing umbels of yellow green or chartreuse colored flowers on the tops of a single stem that branches at the tip. Very easy to grow from seed and takes very little care once established.

Can either be sown direct or started in pots earlier in the late winter early spring to give the plant a good start. Germinates quickly and easily. Pot on into larger pots and harden off before planting directly. For more information on growing seeds see our general growing instructions.
