Euphorbia characias wulfenii usually flowers
around March or even April. It is an evergreen perennial plant, with woody stems and grey-green linear leaves arranged all around the stems. Cut stems exude a
white latex-like sap, which can be extremely irritant if left on the skin. Mine grows to around 4 feet tall when flowering. The flowers form at the top of the
stems in their second year, and these are typical yellow-green Euphorbia flowers, with small red centres. The picture was taken around mid-February, when the
flowers were just unfurling.
